”Gully Boy” is India”s entry at the Oscars 2019, and the film’s heroine Alia Bhatt still cannot believe it.
“This is such a big first for me… my first film to go to the Oscars. It is a big deal for me. It is such an exciting moment for team ”Gully Boy”. I can”t tell you my feelings right now. For now there”s just hope that we make it to five final nominations for Best Foreign Film at the Oscars. But being selected as India”s official entry to the Oscars in itself is a big big deal for me,” said Alia.
The film”s director Zoya Akhtar is elated, naturally. “This has been a great year and I am so overwhelmed with the response our work is getting. I am thrilled and very grateful that ”Gully Boy” has been picked as India”s official entry for the Oscars,” she said.
