Yes.... Rang De Basanti is India's entry to Oscars 2006.
It's official: Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Rang De Basanti is India's entry to the Oscars next year. So, Aamir Khan heads to the Oscars yet again.

And, the second one?
Deepa Mehta's Water will be Canada's Official entry to Oscars.

Canada has set a record for foreign Oscar submissions by nominating a Hindi-language film, the Deepa Mehta-directed Water. Delhi-raised Mehta has made Toronto her home for over two decades and Water is the most successful of the seven films she has made in 15 years.

    @ Krithika:
    "Jeans" was sent for oscar as official indian entry!!

    @ RS:
    u're mistaken... Last years entry from india was paheli.... Sachien was one of the 14 movies which were considered...

  1. R.Subramanian

    yea yea i was telling the same thing..india sarba anuparathukku niraya padam nominate pannathula Sachin was one :))

    thanks for the info - i think water might have a better chance of winning though

  1. R.Subramanian

    yea visi is almost right.......coz i feel western countries would like to showcase movies that show india as a bundle of superstitions, poverty, beggars etc rather than in positive light as Rang De basanti portrays... thatz why satyajit ray movies have reached more places than movies like lagaan or RDB

    @ Visit:

    @ RS:
    Not sure if thats the reason!!
