OscarsOscar is the prestigious award in the world to be given to a film personality. Everyone dreams of picking up an Oscar in their lifetime but it is not very easy because of the tough competition. Now, the Indian jury is busy picking up a film for the 94th Academy Awards. A total of 14 films are picked for the screening taking place in Kolkata. Tamil film Mandela is on the list.

A panel of 15 judges from the Film Federation of India, under the leadership of Malayalam filmmaker Shaji N. Karun, is watching the films to finalize India’s Official Entry for Oscars in the ‘Best International Film’ category.

Sardar Uddham (Hindi), Chello Show (Gujarathi), Nayattu (Malayalam), Mandela (Tamil), and Sherni (Hindi) are the popular titles on the list. There is no Telugu film on the list and the jury will make the final decision soon.

Since it is the centenary year of Satyajit Ray, the first-ever Indian to win an Oscar, the Indian film fraternity is hoping to win an Oscar as a tribute to him.

Jallikattu has been picked as India’s official entry at the Oscars last year but the film failed to make it to the final nominations.

Meanwhile, the Oscars 2022 will be held on March 27th next year.

Reportedly, a leading OTT platform has offered Rs. 100 crore for the couple to get the streaming rights of their wedding. But it is still unclear whether they have accepted the offer or not.

Speaking to Pinkvilla, a source had said that it is a common tradition in the West where celebrity couples sell their wedding footage to the paparazzi. The source stated, “It is a common trend in the West for celebrities to sell off their wedding footage and images to magazines and at times even channels, as there are a lot of fans who wish to witness all that happened in the life-changing event of their idol.”

“The streaming giant is planning to bring in the same trend in India too and to kick off their wedding franchise, they have offered Rs 100 crore to Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal,” the source further added.

It has to be seen if Vicky and Kat accept this offer and make their wedding event stream on the OTT platform.

Bellamkonda Sreenivas will play the character Sivaji in the film and not many changes have been made to the film’s story except for changing the native, backdrop, and a few cultural aspects, to suit the audience of the Bollywood cinema.

Meanwhile, the film unit encountered a shock when they learned that Chatrapathi title has already been registered by some other production house and they are not ready to sacrifice it. The makers wanted to release the film with the title Chatrapathi but it is not happening now.

The film unit then planned to release the film with the title Sivaji but it is also registered already in Hindi. With two important and powerful titles sipping off their hand, the makers landed in a confusion about cracking the title for the movie.

Director VV Vinayak feels that Chatrapathi and Sivaji will be apt for the film and disliked many other suggestions for the title. So, the reports say that the producers of the project are planning to convince the producers who registered the title ‘Chatrapathi’ in Bollywood.

The reports say that 2 Cr is being offered to the producer who registered Chatrapathi title. We have to see if the other party gets convinced with the huge offer.
