While the nation hails👏🏼 'Newton' and its selection as the official Oscars entry from India🇮🇳, looks like Priyanka and her mother Madhu Chopra aren't as pleased😑. Reason? They were hoping their production, 'Ventilator'🎥 would make the cut!
According to director Rajesh Mhapuskar🎬, the entire team was excited and hopeful about the verdict on September 22📄. Madhu even anxiously gave him a ring☎ the previous night to discuss the announcement. 🔈“I told her not to worry, assuring her that only the best film would make it. We were a bit disappointed when we learnt about the verdict, the next day.”
He continued, 🔈“I guess, Priyanka must be even more disappointed because she was always ambitious about the film. Had it been selected, she would have ensured that it was the most-talked-about film in the run to the Oscars, especially since she is already an established name there. 'Ventilator' was always the favourite baby of their banner.”
'Ventilator' won big at the National Awards🏆 this year, earning Rajesh the best direction award too.
