Actress Tena Desae is thrilled with a Golden Globe nomination for her Hollywood film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
The movie is in the run for the best motion picture (Musical or Comedy) award, it was announced in Los Angeles Thursday.
"I had the best feeling about this film from the word 'go' and always expected the best for it. I'm thrilled the film has been nominated for the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Critics' Choice Awards. They're all much respected awards and a nomination is supremely exciting," Tena said in a statement.
The actress, who plays Sunaina, a call centre worker in the movie, added: "The competition is tough and has some truly fantastic films this year, which makes the nomination all the more incredible. Fingers crossed."
Tena will soon be seen opposite Rajeev Khandelwal and Paresh Rawal in Table No.21. Directed by Aditya Dutt, the movie is dark and intense and hits theatre on January 4, 2013.
