‘Sarbjit’ eyeing for Oscar Awards

Mumbai: Producer of ‘Sarbjit’, Vashu Bhagnani, plans to send the film as India’s official entry for the Oscars. The producer said “The team will be sending the Aishwarya Rai Bachhcan-Randeep Hooda starrer movie as an entry, independently or in the race with other films. We will channelize our energy to make sure it’s in the race to become India’s entry to the Oscar this year. The film has already been screened at the Cannes Film Festival, where the film was highly appreciated and loved by the audiences. We will also enroll the film as one of the competitors in the bid for National Awards.”

‘Sarbjit’ is based on the life story of a farmer from Punjab, named Sarabjit Singh, from Punjab who was incarcerated in a Pakistani jail for over two decades, while his sister fought a dogged battle for his release.
