Nikhil Chinapa asks Vivek Agnohotri: 'What is an official contender?' - Mumbai News
by IANS | Updated Jan 13, 2023
He tweeted after sharing Vivek's post with a poster of the movie with the logo of the 95th Oscars: "What is an official 'contender'?"
Earlier the filmmaker had tweeted: "Thanks for your love, support and blessings. This is the year of Indian Cinema. #Oscars2023." He shared the poster with the logo of the upcoming Oscars and it was also mentioned that the film is an "Official Contender From India"
After his post, many responded asking him about the real status of the film and why he has made such a claim.
One wrote: "Just hallucination by @vivekagnihotri..With this logic all 18 lakh students are official contender for medical seats."
Another tweeted: Congratulations, @vivekagnihotri..Why should one wait for the the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to declare the Winners!? When We can declare for ourselves (as Official Contenders)? Btw, What is "Official" about it? Nominated by GoI !?"
One commented on Nikhil's tweet: "Same meaning as facts are not facts."
Another user mentioned: "Why have you put "contender" line in fine print, and Oscars in large? So that people don't realise it didn't make it to the shortlist."
'The Kashmir Files' has made it to the eligibility list of Oscars 2023 alongside films like 'RRR', 'Gangubai Kathiawadi', 'Kantara' and 'Rocketry' amongst others.
However, merely featuring in the list doesn't mean that it is shortlisted or nominated.
