Kollywood's hit director feels that India's entry stands a chance at the Oscars this year

Dhanush's brother Selvaraghavan, the Kollywood director known for delivering blockbusters was all praise for the Malayalam film Jallikattu, India's official entry for this year's Oscars. He noted that he watched Lijo Jose Pellissery's film and has a strong feeling that it is a worthy contender and that we stand a good chance at the Oscars. Well, it may be known that only a handful of Indian films won even a nomination at the Oscars earlier, leave alone winning it. As for Jallikattu, it fetched the director an award at Kerala state Film Awards this year. The film is a satirical take on how man can become a beast and can put the real animals to shame in certain situations.
