Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan, whose directorial "Vishwaroop" was in the race with other films for India's official entry to Academy Awards this year, is not disappointed at losing the opportunity.

Instead he feels it would be more sensible when Indian talent works in American movies and wins an Oscar.

"With due respect, my films have gone seven times to the Oscars but I think it will make more sense when the Indian talent takes part in American movies and wins an Oscar or it must be like the way Ray saab (Satyajit Ray) did for world cinema. Otherwise, we are just visiting America, we are tourists," Haasan told reporters here Sunday at the closing of the Jagran Film Festival.

Satyajit Ray, legendary filmmaker-writer, not only won an Oscar but also all the major awards, including National Awards. His film "Pather Panchali", won a total of eleven international prizes, including one at the Cannes Film Festival.

This year, out of the over 21 Indian films competing to make it to the Oscars, Gujarati film "The Good Road" has been chosen as India's official entry to the Oscars.

The other films that were competing in the category included "The Lunchbox", "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", "Ship of Theseus", "English Vinglish", "Vishwaroop", Malayalam film "Celluloid" and Bengali film "Shabdo".
