India’s Official Oscars Entry: Chhello Show, Not RRR

The desire to see director SS Rajamouli kissing the Oscars is growing everyday in the country. Rajamouli also reacted to the trending debate among the film circles. Many critics and film buffs also argued that India should RRR as its official entry for the Oscars. But, The Film Federation of India picked up a Gujarathi film as India’s official entry for the Oscars.

Gujarati film “Chhello Show” (The Last Film Show) has been named as India’s official Oscars entry and the announcement has come out a while ago. Many thought that either of RRR or The Kashmir Files will be the official entry but a Gujarathi film has come in between.

Pan Nalin reacted to the news with a tweet. Nalin wrote, “OMG! What a night this going to be! Gratitude to 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!”

The film is scheduled for a grand release on October 14 2022.
