Actor Kunal Kapoor who was the part of the “revolutionary” Aamir Khan starrer “Rang De Basanti”, feels “Court” represent India’s best chance at the Oscars.
“Though I haven’t watched it yet but as I heard from those people who actually understand and passionate about cinema, I agree it’s a right choice for Oscar,” Kunal said at the Jagran Film Festival where he is part of jury panel for short films.
The sixth edition of the Jagran Film Festival started on Monday with chief guest, filmmaker Sudhir Mishra lighting the lamp. The event turned into a star-studded evening in the presence of celebrities such as R. Madhavan, Ranvir Shorey, Kunal, Dibakar Banerjee among others.
Filmed on a short budget, debutante director Chaitanya Tamhane’s “Court” will represent the country in the Best Foreign Film category at the Academy Awards. The winner will be announced in February.
Kunal, who appeared in films like “Laaga Chunari Mein Daag” (2007), “Aaja Nachle” (2007), and “Bachna Ae Haseeno”, discloses he is writing screenplays for three films, “At present I am writing three movies. All are different genres like romantic drama, action and comedy,” he revealed.
Hinting that he might opt to act in those films, he said: “I am excited about all the three movies, characters are different, and something I have never done before.”
Kunal was last seen in Nila Madhab Panda’s “Kaun Kitney Paani Mein” with Radhika Apte.
