Few hours till the nominations are announced... Ya Allah !!! PPPLLLLEEEEAAAAAASSSEEE !!!!! Pray with me shahrukhies... Ya Rab... I'm about to faint from nervousness... MUMBAI: The fate of Paheli, India's entry to the Oscars, will be known on Tuesday evening. According to producer Shah Rukh Khan, it was time India won an Oscar, but a few suggestions had to be kept in mind before sending the next film to the Oscars. "We need to know their mindset. So we need to hire experts from there who can help us select the film. We need to shorten the length of our films, but I would not want our films to lose their essence by deleting songs," he said. Khan agreed that the outside world knew little about Indian cinema, but Lagaan did help Indian cinema register with those connected to world cinema. Unlike Lagaan which had to compete with 41 films, this year, Paheli will be competing with films from 59 countries. Khan attended a few screenings of the film and received a mixed response. He felt darker and more morbid films are preferred there.
