Priyanka Chopra's 'The White Tiger’ could get Oscar nominations in different categories
'The White Tiger' is adapted from the Booker prize-winning novel of the same name
The film features Adarsh Gourav, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Rajkummar Rao
Adarsh has already got the BAFTA nomination in the Best Actor category
'The White Tiger’ starring Adarsh Gourav, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Rajkummar Rao in lead roles, is likely to repeat the magic that Danny Boyle’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ has created at Oscars 2008. What is common between both films is geographic locations and the story plot that takes you to the interiors of India and the life around you.
Written and directed by Ramin Bahrani, the film is adapted from the Booker prize-winning novel of the same name with Priyanka also playing the role of executive producer of it. Adarsh in the role of witty and cunning Balram Halwai, an Indian driver, has already got the BAFTA nomination in the Best Actor category.
With Oscar nomination set to announce on March 15 and Priyanka taking up the charge of announcer along with Nick, many are hoping that the film is going to have a clean sweep at 93rd Academy Awards.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revealed a list of 366 feature films that are eligible for the Best Picture Academy Award set to take place on April 25.
The list includes three Indian films that are in the running for an Oscar nomination and this includes ‘The White Tiger’s too along with Suriya's film ‘Soorarai Pottru’ and Nila Madhab Panda’s film on climate change ‘Kalira Atita’.
According to a statement put up on the Academy’s official site, to be eligible for consideration for the 93rd Academy Awards, feature films that opened in a commercial motion picture theatre in at least one of six U.S. metropolitan areas (Los Angeles County; the City of New York; the Bay Area; Chicago, Illinois; Miami, Florida; and Atlanta, Georgia) by February 28, 2021, and completed a minimum qualifying run of seven consecutive days in the same venue will be considered.
Also, it is said the film’s streaming platform Netflix has sent the film for Oscar consideration in 14 categories and this includes names like Mukul Deora (Best Picture), Adarsh Gourav (Best Actor in a Leading Role), Priyanka Chopra Jonas, and Rajkummar Rao (Best Actor and Actress in a Supporting Role), Tiya Tejpal (Best Production Design), Smriti Chauhan (Best Costume Design), Nakul Kamte (Best Sound), Divine and Karan Kanchan (Best Original Song).
Hoping to see Priyanka lifting the Oscar this year.
