From Kantara to The Kashmir Files - 5 Indian films on Oscars qualification list
Five Indian films are in the Oscars longlist - which means they will now be voted upon by Oscar members and stand a chance for nomination.
Five Indian films may be headed to the Oscars this year, under major categories including 'Best Picture' and 'Best Actor'. The development comes mere weeks after Gujarati film Chhello Show was shortlisted in the Best International Film category and RRR's catchy 'Naatu Naatu' was shortlisted in the 'Best Original Song' category.
"Thanks to the jury at Golden Globes for nominating RRR movie in two categories. Congratulations to the entire team…Thanks to all the fans and audience for your unconditional love and support through out," tweeted SS Rajamouli whose blockbuster Telugu epic action drama film is also on the list.
Meanwhile, Kannada film Kantara has made it to the Oscars qualification list in the ‘Best Picture and ’Best Actor' categories. Written and directed by Rishab Shetty, the blockbuster had minted ₹400 crores at the box office worldwide last year.
“We are overjoyed to share that 'Kantara' has received two Oscar qualifications! A heartfelt thank you to all who have supported us. We look forward to share this journey ahead with all of your support. Can’t wait to see it shine at the Oscars," he tweeted.
Pan Nalin's Gujarati film 'Chhello Show' was previously announced as India's official entry for the Oscars 2023.
India's 'Oscars list' also features films such as 'Me Vasantrao' and 'Tuzhya Sathi Kahihi', R Madhavan's 'Rocketry: The Nambi Effect', 'Iravin Nizhal' and Kannada movie 'Vikrant Rona'.
