Rajkummar Rao starrer 'Newton' fails to make it to the Oscars

Rajkummar Rao’s critically acclaimed movie ‘Newton’ which became India's official entry for the Oscars' Best Foreign Language Film category this year, has failed to make it to the final cut. According to The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Amit Masurkar-directed black comedy failed to get the number of votes to enter the final selection. It would’ve been a double whammy for Rajkummar Rao if the film had made it to the final Oscars list as he had won the Best Actor Award at APSA held at Brisbane in November 2017.
