    The pall of controversy surrounding the selection of Eklavya as India's official entry to the Oscars has thickened. Director Bhavna Talwar and her husband producer Sheetal Talwar have sent a legal notice to the Film Federation Of India, alleging that the selection of Eklavya was “biased and vitiated and intended to wrongfully benefit the producer of the film Eklavya."

    One more jury member for the selection committee, writer Jaleel Sherwani has come forward to express strong disapproval of the selection. "After the decision I haven't been able to sleep or eat. It is wrong. Dharm should've gone. I don't know how this happened. But I've decided never to be part of any jury again. Eklavya gives such a wrong impression of our country and its culture."

    Retaliating to director Bhavna Talwar calling Eklavya "boring" Vidhu Vinod Chopra has been quoted as calling Dharm "a load of shit…immature, childish".

    Talwar is sarcasm in person. "If Mr. Chopra thinks my film about the religious divide and brotherhood is a load of shit then he must be right. He is, after all, the maker of such undying masterpieces as Kareeb, Mission Kashmir and Eklavya. I'm ready to take lessons in filmmaking from Mr Chopra if he's willing to take me on as an apprentice. Maybe then I'll stop making immature films."
