Director N.Shankar is nominated as one in 15 members in the screening committee to decide India’s official entry to the Oscars. Film Federation of India has announced this movie. The committee will be watching the special screening of all the movies sent by various industries in India from September 15th and finally decide up on one. Jagadguru Adhishankara and Midhunam are already in the race and Eega may also join them.
Questions are being raised about N.Shankar’s inclusion as there are many other reputed film makers. But the Government do not want to face the ire of Telangana people and therefore nominated N.Shankar who also hails from the region.
