'Delhi Safari' shortlisted for the 85th Academy Awards in the animation category

After wooing the audiences worldwide, Nikhil Advani’s animated adventure 'Delhi Safari' has made its grand entry to world’s most prestigious movie recognition award ceremony. The film has been shortlisted for the 85th Academy Awards in the animation category.Directed by Nikhil Advani, Delhi Safari is an animated family film with real world themes about urban sprawl and the effects of humanity on the global ecosystem. The idea of this film came to Advani in one of many long nature walks that he enjoys taking with his six-year-old daughter.

The balance between fun and being meaningful is what sets the film apart from the many animated films released in this category. Delhi Safari is brave departure from the stereotypical Bollywood animation films with a strong and crisp plot. The English version of the film features the voices of  Jason Alexander, Cary Elwes, Christopher Lloyd, Jane Lynch, Vanessa Williams and Brad Garrett.

Mending the gap between Hollywood and Bollywood, Nikhil Advani's Delhi Safari is an entertaining crossover piece and well deserving for being shortlisted for the Oscars. Here’s hoping that Nikhil gets us an Oscar back home!!
