Ritesh Batra's 'The Lunch Box', which is screened at the Telluride Film Festival has emerged a winner, that it is being loved by some of the most respected names in Hollywood and is regarded as an Oscar favourite.

Best selling author Salman Rushdie tweeted: "I loved The lunch Box, big hit at Telluride Film Festival, best Indian film in a long time. Strong Foreign film Oscar contender, in my view."

Renowned critic A. O. Scott of The New York Times, in his piece about Telluride, wrote that: "The Lunchbox (is) the deft and charming first feature by Ritesh Batra. He uses Mumbai's lunch-delivery system which transports thousands of meals every day from kitchens to offices as the background for a quasi-romantic fable..."

The Hollywood Reporter's Scott Feinberg too praised the film and also predicted that The Lunchbox is one of the front runners in the Best Foreign Film category at the Oscars.

The Lunch Box starring Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur and Nawazuddin Siddiqui releases in India on 20th September, 2013.
