Oscars 2021: RRR, Kashmir Files given a miss!

'Roudram Ranam Rudhiram' is not India's official Oscar entry. The jury has chosen 'Chhello Show' (Gujarati).

This puts an end to the months-long debate around Rajamouli's movie and 'The Kashmir Files'. Many had hoped that India will try to cash in on the popularity of 'RRR' in the West by sending the Jr NTR-Ram Charan movie in the Best Foreign Film category.

But all is not lost. 'RRR' might still get nominated in the Best Film category if the Western jury chooses to. Only time will tell whether that is going to happen. 'RRR' has that chance, unlike 'Kashmir Files'.

Nalin Pan, the director of 'Chhello Show', is delighted. "OMG! What a night this going to be! Gratitude to the Film Federation of India and thank you FFI jury members. Thank you for believing in Chhello Show.  Now I can breathe again and believe in cinema that entertains, inspires and enlightens! (sic)," he wrote.
