"Newton", a Hindi film set against the backdrop of elections in the world's largest democracy, was on Friday announced as India's official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars.

Newton released in cinemas in India yesterday and has been receiving rave reviews.

The film is expected to gross around 3-4 crores on its third day as we saw 85 percent occupancy for the morning shows on Sunday.

Have you watched Newton yet? You have got to read his tweet once more...

The actor says he is particular about his choice of characters and prefers doing films that he believes will leave an impact on the audience. "I remember after I wrote the script just before I was going to shoot, a friend told me about Secret Ballot".


Secret Ballot is available on YouTube, but it doesn't look similar to Newton. No Indian film since "Lagaan" in 2001 has made it to the final five of the Oscar race, and no Indian film has ever won the Academy Award. "Our job is to select one out of the 26 films that are given to us. We will put all our energies to take the film forward". When the script is good, one gets an idea that it will do well in every which way, be it commercially or in terms of awards and global recognition. That's not our job. He believes that it is due to the blessings of his mother that have resulted in so much success for the movie and for his career.

He adds that it is upon the jury to ensure that the film gives out a message to the society, besides checking other technicalities. He's very encouraged by the industry support for his film.

Notably, this is not the only case where an Indian film has been in the limelight for alleged plagiarism.

I am also an idealist and try to be sincere and honest.
