Priyanka Chopra and her mother are upset ever since Newton was announced as India’s official entry to Oscars 2018 last Friday. They are disappointed as their film, Ventilator, did not make it.
Ever since Rajkummar Rao’s Newton was announced as the official entry of India for Oscars this year, appreciation has been pouring in. Fans and insiders from Bollywood have hailed the move and congratulated the crew of the movie. Priyanka Chopra and her mom Madhu Chopra, however, are reportedly upset.
“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,” Director Rajesh Mhapuskar added.
