    Fahadh Faasil’s Malayankunju and The Kashmir Files in contention for India’s Oscar entry, final result awaited – Exclusive – Times of India

    India’s eminent experts and film industry personnel are locked in an intense discussion right now, contemplating which Indian film will be the right one to send as the nation’s official entry to the Oscar awards. Sources close to the jury members have revealed to ETimes that the main films in contention are Vivek Agnihotri’s The Kashmir Files, SS Rajamouli’s RRR, Fahadh Faasil’s Malayankunju and Nani’s Shyam Singha Roy.

    While RRR seems to be trending on social media since morning, the Malayalam hit Malayannkunju is turning to be another strong contender for the Oscar entry. Of course, leading the charge is The Kashmir Files, which is also on top of the list of the jury‘s considerations. A source told ETimes, “The jury is having a strong discussion on the Malayalam film. There are strong cases being made for the big Telugu hits RRR and Shyam Singha Roy, too.”

    The jury members are expected to come to a final candidate by evening today. It will be interesting to note if India’s official entry to next year’s Oscars will be a Hindi films or one from the South industries. Either way, all films in contention have been well-received by Indian audiences, while entries like RRR and Shyam Singha Roy have also impressed overseas audiences through their theatrical and OTT runs.
