2001 was a lucky year for Bollywood.
Ashutosh Gowariker's Lagaan made it to the prestigious Oscars by bagging a nomination in the Best Foreign Film catergory. Though it lost to Bosnia's No Man's Land, Lagaan brought India on the map of international cinema.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas was expected to follow suit in 2002. The Shah Rukh Khan-Madhuri Dixit-Aishwarya Rai period drama failed to garner any takers at the Academy.
This year, too, none of the Indian films succeeded in qualifying for the sought after Oscar nomination.
If you could, which Indian film would you nominate for the Oscars this year? And why? Do tell us. We would love to hear from you!
Note: The nominated film should have been released before November 15, 2003.
