And for the happiness of the team, the movie entered the Oscar race and was made available in the Academy Screening Room, contesting in 4 categories. The news was shared by the makers, on the Republic Day 2021, taking the team to immense joy.
And the final list for the Oscar Race was published on Tuesday and for all our disappointment, ‘Soorarai Pottru’ is not in the list. The Hindi movie of Priyankra Chopra, ‘The White Tiger’ is said to be in the final list.
We know already that the Malayalam movie ‘Jallikattu’ was out of the race in the first round itself.
