'Cake' director Asim Abbasi bags Best Director award at UK Asian Film Festival
The festival has a screening for the film earlier on March 20, following Q&A with Asim and other cast members.
Unfortunately, Asim could not attend the event himself and the award was accepted by BBC broadcast journalist, Attika Choudhary on the director’s behalf.
Following the award, Asim tweeted, "Oh wow! So humbled and moved. Thank you @cometoUKAFF for the honour."
