Film Federation of India chose a Gujarati film The Good Road, directed by Gyan Correa, as India’s official entry to the 2014 Oscars. Now this movie has beat many movies like The Lunchbox, Ship of Thesus, Madras Cafe, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, etc.
So far, many movie makers have expressed their displeasure over the FFI’s choice and film-maker Ritesh Batra, who directed The Lunchbox expressed his displeasure publicly. His comments offended the FFI and they demanded a written apology which he gave later.
Going by this trend, it was safe enough to assume Farhan Akhtar was also upset over his epic Bhaag Milkha Bhaag not being selected for the Oscars. But the 39 year old actor/producer/writer/director, said he is not upset over the FFI’s choice.
He said, “We made the film the way we wanted to… Audience have liked it too. We are happy. There is a selection committee which decides which film should go (to Oscars)… It is up to them. I am fine with it.”
The actor who is going to launch flickbay.com, a new interactive website on Bollywood, will be next seen with Vidya Balan in Shaadi Ke Side Effects.
