After making the decision to nominate
Chhello Show as India's official entry for the Oscars in 2023
, the Film Federation of India (FFI) faced a
great deal of criticism
The Federation of Western India Cine Employees
has since voiced a number of objections to the
movie's Oscar nomination.
In response to one of the criticisms leveled at his film,
director Pan Nalin
has also commented.
In a formal declaration, FWICE
expressed several objections to the Oscar nomination of
Chhello Show or Last Show in English
The statement said, in part, "
This year's nomination of the movie "Chhello Show
" as India's official entry to the 95th Academy Award is not in
accordance with the usual criteria
"While we have nothing against the film's creators or producers
, the genuine winners of this prize cannot be forced
to make a difficult decision" FWICE added
