    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.

    How sad if it is true. In the german forum they wrote Paheli is not nominated.

    Oh well. I guess it was too much to expect. I was watching 'Seedhi Baat' on Aaj Tak yesterday and I got the feeling even Shah Rukh himself didn't have much hopes.

    Its over for this year-yes-but lets go on with hope, next year brings new movies, and new chances. We all know, Shah Rukh is such a wonderful actor, he has the energy and the strength to get it once! Inshah Allah!

    yes, i'm very disappointed. but i don't think this will be srk's last brush with the oscars.

    more than likely, Paradise Now will win. it won the golden globe and was critically loved here. wafa - not to get off-topic, but have you seen that movie?

    so what! it doesn't make paheli a bad film.
    it shouldn't be so important for us to get nominated or to get an oscar. as long as the people like indian films and watch them it's good.
    and we shouldn't expect hollywood to give much acknowledgement to indian films, because they surely fear the day when they lose the market to bollywood, and that day will come.

    i think shahrukh khan is far better than to be acknowledged by an oscar. no oscar will take the place of the love of his fans, and no star is more loved than he is. in fact they should beg srk to accept an oscar!
    i'm just sad because it was his dream and he put so much money and effort in it and now he must be very disappointed.

    Oh shervin you are soooo right!
    Your words are so lovely. You made the point!!! :thumb:

    And yes, the love from his fans are more an Award worth as the Oscar ever be can ...
