Instead he feels it would be more sensible when Indian talent works in American movies and wins an Oscar.
"With due respect, my films have gone seven times to the Oscars
but I think it will make more sense when the Indian talent takes
part in American movies and wins an Oscar or it must be like the
way Ray saab (Satyajit Ray) did for world cinema. Otherwise, we are
just visiting America, we are tourists," Hassan told reporters here
Sunday at the closing of the Jagran Film Festival.
Satyajit Ray, legendary filmmaker-writer, not only won an Oscar
but also all the major awards, including National Awards. His film
Pather Panchali, won a total of eleven international
prizes, including one at the Cannes Film Festival.
This year, out of the over 21 Indian films competing to make it
to the Oscars, Gujarati film The Good Road has been chosen
as India's official entry to the Oscars.
The other films that were competing in the category included The Lunchbox, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Ship of Theseus, English Vinglish, Vishwaroopam, Malayalam film Celluloid and Bengali film Shabdo.
