On Sunday 18th March Jassa attended the Rakuten TV EMPIRE awards 2018.
The star-studded event saw Steven Spielberg honoured with the Legend of Our Lifetime Award.
Amma Asante took home the Inspiration Award and delivered a powerful thank you speech, addressing the need for greater representation in the industry.
Sorry for not being more articulate when I came over to congratulate you @AmmaAsante. Your speech was stunning. I was trying to say that as someone of mixed heritage I've been particularly moved by the stories you've sought to tell. An inspiration indeed. https://t.co/q9pUR9tUOU— Jassa Ahluwalia (@OfficialJassa) March 19, 2018
