In a career of over 10 years, Usha Jadhav has won several honours. The actor won the National Award for the Marathi movie Dhag in 2012 and she added another feather to her cap by being felicitated with the Best Actor (Female) Award at the recently-concluded International Film Festival of India (IFFI). The 32-year-old might also consider another part of her career as significant; sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan in Bhootnath Returns.

The veteran actor congratulated his former co-star for her award, and exulted over the ‘proud moment’ for her parents.
