Vidhu Vinod Chopra's film, Eklavya, is out of the Oscar race.
In a list released by the Oscars' official website, Eklavya did not find a mention among the nine films nominated in the Best Foreign Language Films category.
The nine films that made it are:
Eklavya, starring Amitabh Bachchan [Images], Saif Ali Khan [Images], Sanjay Dutt [Images] and Boman Irani, had faced a lot of opposition when it was selected to be India's choice for the Oscars. Director Bhavna Talwar, who's Dharam was among the favourites, claimed that the jury was bias, and was partial to Eklavya. She even went to court regarding the issue. Seems like the fuss was not worth it after all.
