We have a happy news for all Visaaranai fans. Yes, the critically acclaimed Vetri Maaran film has been picked as India’s official entry to the most prestigious film awards, the OSCARS.
Visaaranai will be the 9th Tamil film to enter the Oscars with Hey Ram being the last entry from Tamil cinema. It is a proud moment to have a Tamil film representing the nation to the Oscars after 16 years. It must be noted that 7 Kamal Haasan films have been submitted to the Oscars till date out of which two are other language films.
Though 8 Tamil films have been submitted to the Oscars, none of them have been nominated by the Oscar board till date. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope Visaaranai becomes India’s first Academy Award winning film for Best Foreign Language Film.
We are glad to register that we have congratulated director Vetri Maaran for this recognition. Our sincere compliments to Dhanush, Samuthirakani, Dinesh and the rest of the cast and crew on this occasion.
Thithi, Neerja, Nil Battey Sannata, Udta Punjab and Sairat are the other shortlisted Indian films.
