Good news - a ton-for 'Newton'

Maverick movie director Amit Masurkar (of ‘Sulemani Keeda’ fame)  seemed ecstatic that his Rajkummar Rao-Anjali Patil starrer ‘Newton’ will be India’s official entry in the ‘Best Foreign Language Film Category’ at the prestigious Oscar Awards this year.

“We are indeed highly honoured with this amazing news that the entire FFI jury has unanimously selected and singled out our film.  Our entire cast and crew has worked very hard, against heavy odds, to make this film happen. We are looking forward to taking our local political satire ‘Newton’ to a larger global audience,” reacted the unassuming Amit who has also vehemently denied allegations that his film has been allegedly inspired by an Iranian film.

“All I know is that my story which is based out of Chattisgarh is original, because of which our film has already merited awards at various foreign film festivals,” he  has countered.

Meanwhile, the bonus  good news for ‘Newton’ is that it will be the first movie ever to receive a generous grant of Rs. 1 crore from the Central Government, to encourage meaningful cinema, according to the Film Federation of India Chairman  C V Reddy.
