For me, it is the movies, cinema, films which have constantly mesmerized my instincts, given me hope and guided me along this journey called life. There are many “once upon a time” fairytales and the Oscar winners certainly have their own “once upon a time” fairytales to speak of. Thanks to cinema, I too can say “Once upon a time in Hollywood, cinema guided, mesmerized and saved me. Hence, here I am today giving a tribute to the Academy Awards for continuing to inspire me and giving me more to aspire to.”
