Bollywood actor Aamir Khan said he is disappointed at “Peepli Live” failing to get selected at the Oscars but is happy that his film represented India.
“To be selected in a pool of over 50-60 top class films is an honour in itself. You were with the best creative people from all over the world. But yes we are disappointed,” said Aamir.
Peepli Live beat other critically acclaimed movies like Udaan and Raajneeti to the top spot as India’s pick and Aamir Khan has said that he is disappointed at it’s exit.
India had a golden Oscar moment in 2009 when Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire swept the awards. American filmmaker Megan Mylan also took home the Oscar for Best Documentary for Smile Pinky.
