      People saying why not Dangal, I agree with them they should’ve sent Dangal or bahubali 2 because now days oscars are rigged so the amount of money they made from the movie, they could’ve paid some to the oscars and got the award!

      Unfortunately newton will not win! As always!

  2. This film is going to be a disaster one of the criteria’s for a film to be Oscar worthy is it has to be financially successful be that above average typical agenda heavy industry

  3. Parshya aamir dosen’t accept Indian awards so it’s a way of industrywalas taking revenge on him best way forward is for dangal to go as an independent entry.

  4. For me it’s Dangal… If India sends Dangal for the oscars they’ll surely nominate Dangal… Bcz last Indian movie nominated for oscars was Laagaan and for me Dangal is the best Aamir Khan film ever… Dangal deserves the place because only it has a potential to win the Academy Award…

    Baahubali 2 won accolades in USA too they it should have been sent to oscar

  6. Everybody shouting Dangal please note that it is not eligible for 2018 Oscars because it was released on 2016. Sarabjit was sent to Oscars instead of Dangal last year.
