Aamir Khan's directorial debut Taare Zameen Par will be India's official entry for the Oscar 81st annual Academy awards for the best foreign film, the jury announced in Mumbai on Saturday.
Other films in fray for selection were critically acclaimed Marathi films Valu and Tingya, Nishikant Kamat's Mumbai Meri Jaan, Neeraj Pandey's A Wednesday, Ashutosh Gowarikar's Jodhaa Akbar, Farhan Akhtar's Rock On!, Subhash Ghai's Black and White and Telugu film Ghanyam.
Here is a piece with Aamir Khan's thoughts. In other news, I know what I'm getting me for Eid this year! The largest I've built had 4000 pieces, and this has close to 6000! You might recall a picture from Legoland California in this post; this project will take about as much time as the drawing did. But...yippee! Chhota Akbar would be proud to explore it!
Until next time.
