Idiotic films go to Oscars! - Priyadarshan
[an error occurred while processing this directive]Leading film maker Priyadarshan has slammed the selectors of Indian films for Oscar award nominations.

He spoke to the media after receiving the best film award for Kanchivaram and asked,"I have always been saying that we are making a mockery of ourselves by sending such idiotic films to the Oscars. This is very sad. We have great filmmakers but none of their films are sent to the Oscars, why?"

Speaking about Kanchivaram, the ace director says that the film was premiered at Toronto International Film Festival where it got a standing ovation.

"The standing ovation by 1000 foreigners in Toronto marked the success of making the film. But the selectors haven't selected the film for Oscar...," said Priyadarshan.
