Taare Zameen Par out of the Oscar race
We actually hate to do this, but since our job is to bring exclusive news to you, we, with a heavy heart inform you that Taare Zameen Par, India's official entry to the Oscars, is out of the Oscar race in the 'Best Foreign Film' category. The irony of the situation for Aamir is that on one hand while his Ghajini is breaking records, the news of TZP being out of the Oscars must have broken a million hearts, including his.
The 9 films that will advance to the to the next round of voting in the Foreign Language Film category include: Revanche (Austria), The Necessities of Life (Canada), The Class (France), The Baader Meinhof Complex (Germany), Waltz with Bashir (Israel), Departures (Japan), Tear This Heart Out (Mexico), Everlasting Moments (Sweden) and 3 Monkeys (Turkey).
This is actually the second time that Aamir has lost out in the race to the Oscars, the first time being Lagaan, though back then the film had reach the final round. One just hopes that the saying of 'third time lucky' really rubs off on Bollywood's very own 'prized possession' Aamir Khan!
