"Yes, the film has been approached by the Oscar library," confirms our source, "The prestigious library, that also houses scripts of iconic films like Devdas, Lagaan and Kal Ho Na Ho to name a few, have shown keen interest in the film's script."
Released last year, the film was not supported by many critics. However, super hit songs by Pritam along with some bone crunching 'masala' entertainment put together by Prabhu Dheva ensured that audience turned the film into a success. Add to that some good marketing and promotion by Eros along with NextGen Films and 2013 ended with a successful film while also ending Shahid's uninspired lean patch at the box office.
He said, "It's a huge honor and I am happy with this recognition for the film. Even though critics were not too kind on the film, audience gave it a green signal. In fact after a good theatrical response, the film is doing so well on satellite too. Its songs played right through the New Year parties and wedding celebrations. Now an Oscar stamp is further cherry on the cake."
The film has dialogues penned by Shiraz Ahmed and screenplay by Prabhu Dheva, Sunil Agarwal and Ravi S. Sundaram.
