“Vicky Donor” director Shoojit Sircar feels that the film fraternity should show support to India’s official entry into the Oscars, “The Good Road”. The director said that it is important that the Gujarati film is marketed well.
“I think now the film fraternity should collect lots of money and contribute to ‘The Good Road’…they need it to market the film well…let’s all join hands,” he posted on micro-blogging site Twitter Monday.
“The Good Road” will represent India in the best foreign film category at the Academy Awards that will take place March 2, 2014.
The movie was selected among other films like “The Lunchbox”, “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”, “English Vinglish”, “Vishwaroopam”, Malayalam film “Celluloid” and Bengali film “Shabdo”.
Directed by Gyan Correa, the film revolves around the lives of three individuals travelling on a highway. “The Good Road” has also won the National Award for best feature film in Gujarati earlier this year.
