Indian National Award winner Bengali film 'Jaatishwar' might add in the list of next Oscar under the category of International film. The announcement will soon be made which films from India are going to participate for nomination in the next Oscar.
This Srijit Mukherji film is a highly expected candidate for the Oscar. A total of nine films are already submitted to the jury board and they are Rajinikanth featured film 'Kochadaiiyaan', Kangana Ranaut featured film 'Queen', Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan featured film 'Two States', Hansal Mehta directed film 'Shahid' and 'City Lights'. However, the chances of 'Jaatishwar' being selected among all the other films are highly probable.
