Anurag Basu Not Disappointed Over 'Barfi!' Oscar Ouster

Even though his latest film, Barfi!, is out of contention for the Oscars, director Anurag Basu is not disappointed. He feels that better films have made it to the top nine. At a recent event, he was quoted saying that he has no compaints, as all the other films are so good.

 

'Barfi!', starring Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz, was India's official entry for the best foreign language film category at the 85th Academy Awards this year.

 

Of the 71 films that qualified for the Oscars from across the world, nine have been shortlisted. These will further compete to make it to the final five.

 

The nine films are Amour from Austria, War Witch from Canada, No from Chile, A Royal Affair from Denmark, The Intouchables from France, The Deep from Iceland, Kon-Tiki from Norway, Beyond the Hills from Romania and Sister from Switzerland.

 

The final list will be announced on January 10, next year.
