While Slumdog Millionaire is busy garnering awards, Aamir Khan‘s Taare Zameen Par has not been selected for the Academy Awards to be held this February. The film was to represent India in the “Best Foreign Language Film” category but did not make it to the final nomination list. Recently released was the list of the nine films advancing, out of which only five will be selected for an official nomination.
So far there has been no word from Aamir Khan himself in regards to this breaking news, but one expects that he will remain optimistic for the future. So while India may not be in the Oscar race this year, one can rest assured that we have the equally exciting Filmfare Awards coming up!
