'My Name Is Khan' makes it to Oscars' reminder list'

Mumbai, Jan 7 (IANS) Aamir Khan's 'Peepli Live' is India's official entry for the 83rd Academy Awards, but Shah Rukh Khan's 'My Name Is Khan' has also made its way to the prestigious awards.

Director Karan Johar's take on post-9/11 US through an Asperger's patient Rizwan Khan, played by Shah Rukh Khan, 'My Name Is Khan' has made it to the reminder list of movies eligible for this year's Academy Awards.

' 'MNIK' started off as a movement and it's heartening to hear that today it's in the broad list of films eligible to be in the running in all categories. I'm honoured that the film has that kind of acceptance level on a global platform,' Johar was quoted as saying.

Other films that are included in the list are 'Biutiful', 'Clash Of The Titans', 'The Expendables', 'Fair Game', 'Inception' and 'Iron Man 2', among others.

'MNIK', also starring Kajol, was co-produced by Dharma Productions and Red Chillies Entertainment and distributed by FOX Star Entertainment.

i dunno if it'll win anything (i kinda doubt, but who knows), but i'm glad it'll get it's due recognition... TongueTongue   though, i do think some parts are exaggerated, but it's theme is universally relevant...!  TongueTongue

If they didnt have that whole saving the "Blacks" section maybe. That part was just ridiculous. Its like he went into the past  - a century ago to find Wilhelma.

LOL  arey, lots of movies have a lot of ridiculous scenes...
 
people go ga-ga over 3 idiots, and the delivery scenes was honestly beyong pathetic... worse than saving the 'blacks' in MNIK...!  TongueTongue
 
 
however, i'm happy it made it to the list... IF ki opinion apni hai, but it's nice to see other people see it as a good film (albeit some exaggeration)...!  TongueTongue
 
and being nominated at oscars means it'll get more buzz... which is awesome...!   WinkBig smile
 
and India's entry is Peepli Live too, which is aamir's movie as compared to Udaan or any other regional movie that might have been better, but yes, that is not bias at all...!   TongueTongueTongue   in any case... does not matter...
 
 
it's good that Indian movies are making it to the list at least... TongueTongue

Udaan should have been the entry...when it was screened at Cannes...the critics went crazy for it! Peepli Live is also a good choice, but MNIK...seriously?!

Paheli and Eklavya were also bad choices...but whateffs b/c I'll never understand the criteria for the selection!!

Taare Zameen Par and RBD were excellent choices!!!

way to be optimistic!! and yep...I totally agree with everything you said!! MNIK was a bit melodramatic, but 2 entries into the Oscar is still good!
