Filmmaker Nikhil Advani's 3D animation movie "Delhi Safari" has been shortlisted for consideration for the best animated feature film category for the 85th Oscars. He is thrilled and urges Indian studios to start investing in such projects.

"I am very happy. When I was making 'Delhi Safari', I had no expectation from the film... The film has found its own way. We are thrilled and excited. We have received positive response for the movie," said Advani.

Twenty-one films have been submitted for consideration in the best animated feature film category, including another Indian venture - "Hey Krishna" ("Krishna Aur Kans").

The final list will be announced Jan 10.

Advani feels animation films need support from studios.

"With animation films, things will not change unless studios start backing these projects. This is a wakeup call for the industry that says the audiences are ready for such films," Advani, who earlier directed "Kal Ho Naa Ho", "Chandni Chowk To China", and "Patiala House", told IANS.

"I am not asking them to put huge amount of money like they put in for 'Rowdy Rathore' or any other films. But at least put some money for such films," he added.
