Netflix To Send The White Tiger For Oscar Consideration In 14 Categories; Will This Priyanka Chopra, Rajkummar Rao And Adarsh Gourav Movie Finally Get Us An Academy Award? - EXCLUSIVE
One has to really wrack one’s brains to remember when  was the last time  a film of Indian  origin had been  shortlisted  for an  Oscar, let alone  won one of those shiny trophies. It looks like we  may finally bring home  an Oscar. The global  buzz surrounding Rahim Bahrani’s  The White Tiger is extremely strong. The most prestigious  media platforms across the world have raved about the film,  and specially Adarsh Gourav’s  central performance.

One now  hears that Netflix is sending The White Tiger for Oscar consideration in 14 categories including  Mukul Deora (Best Picture), Adarsh Gourav (Best Actor in a Leading Role), Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Rajkummar Rao (Best Actor and Actress in a Supporting Role), Tiya Tejpal (Best Production Design), Smriti Chauhan (Best Costume Design), Nakul Kamte (Best Sound), Divine and Karan Kanchan (Best Original Song).

I  suspect  The White Tiger will make it to the Oscar  shortlist in a  few of these categories. Yes, the film has the heft to see  it through right to the  nominations lists.

The film’s leading man Adarsh Gaurav feels it’s all a dream. “I had never imagined our film would get this  kind of  acclaim. The praise and recognition has gone  beyond  anything we had  ever imagined.”

The White Tiger’s director Rahim Bahrani is  no  stranger to  recognition. His earlier films Man Push Cart(2005),  Chop Shop(2007),  Goodbye Solo(2008),At Any Price(2013) and  99 Homes (2015) have gathered  enough encomiums to make  us feel very hopeful  about prospects  of The White Tiger.

Plus, there   is the Priyanka Chopra Jonas factor. She being the  executive  producer would ensure  visibility for  The White Tiger  in America.
