Buzz is that the biographical crime drama is one of the few films that are in contention to be India’s official entry for the Oscars this year. Gangubai Kathiawadi has had multiple screenings in the international belts earlier this year and was received with a standing ovation from the audience at the Berlin Film Festival too. Before releasing in India, the film premiered in Berlin. Apart from that, it was also one of the highest-grossing Indian films in the International belt, with an overseas collection of $7.50 million. The Oscar announcements are expected to be made in a couple of months. Previously, SLB’s 2002 film ‘Devdas’, starring Shah Rukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit earned an Oscar nomination. Meanwhile, SS Rajamouli’s period drama RRR is also in talks for the official entry to the Oscars.
