Actress Ileana D'Cruz, who began her career in Bollywood with "Barfi", said she was proud to be part of the team and that it was an honour and privilege and a matter of pride to get an official entry to the Oscars.
"'Barfi' has received an overwhelming response from the audience and the critics. The news of being selected as India's entry to the Oscars is an honour and a privilege and a matter of pride for the 'Barfi' team," Ileana's spokesperson told IANS.
The Film Federation of India (FFI) shortlisted some critically acclaimed films, including "Paan Singh Tomar" and "Kahaani", but "Barfi" was selected to represent India in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
So far in the history of Indian cinema, only three Bollywood films, including Mehboob Khan's "Mother India" (1957), Mira Nair's "Salaam Bombay" (1988) and Ashutosh Gowariker's "Lagaan(2001)", have made it to the nomination stage.

Ileana's Character was the BEST after Ranbir in Barfi! She really made me cry & I felt so damn connected to her... Shruti's Character was extremely REALISTIC ! Loved the Film & Ranbir-Ileana & hope it gets an Oscar home *fingers crossed*
She overshadowed an actress like Priyanka Chopra for me & that is a HUGE thing <3 Way to go Ileana! Ur Gorgeous & Talented, hope to see a lot of you in future :)
Lol funny, it won't go near Oscar... Seriously... It's copy of notebook...
What the hell is wrong with India? Copying a Hollywood film than sending it back.
Except they changed a little... Lol... Maybe in good acting catogery for Pc and RK. Nothing els I would say.
