Priyanka Chopra has reportedly expressed her disappointment at her production ‘Ventialtor’ being snubbed as an official India entry for Oscars.
DNA India reports that the actress had high hopes for her Marathi film to make it to the Oscars but it was ‘Newton’ that was confirmed as the India entry.
Rajesh Mhapuskar, director of Ventilator told the publication, “I guess, Priyanka must be even more disappointed because she was always ambitious about the film. Had it been selected, she would have ensured that it was the most-talked-about film in the run to the Oscars, especially since she is already an established name there. Ventilator was always the favourite baby of their banner.”
Recalling his conversation with Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu Chopra, Mhapuskar said, “I told her not to worry, assuring her that only the best film would make it. We were a bit disappointed when we learnt about the verdict, the next day.”
