Vivek Agnihotri says he has ‘moved on’ to next film after ‘Chhello Show’ gets Oscars entry

Vivek Agnihotri’s drama The Kashmir Files and SS Rajamouli’s RRR were the top contenders for India’s entry to Oscars 2023. There was a lot of buzz around the Anupam Kher-starrer as many were rooting for the movie. As the Film Federation of India announced the Gujarati film Chhello Show, aka Last Film Show, as India’s entry to the Academy Awards, Vivek Agnihotri recently opened up about the same and revealed that he has “moved on” to his next project.

The filmmaker recently had a chat with Hindustan Times and talked about Chhello Show’s selection for the Oscars. Agnihotri seemingly was not affected by The Kashmir Files not making it to the Oscars and wished the team of Chhello Show “all the luck” for their future run.

The director was then asked if he is planning to take his film to the Academy Awards independently, to which he said that he is not affected by the awards. He also said that the makers of the movie can decide if they want to take it to the awards. In the end, the actor added, “Right now, I am doing another film, and I have moved on.”
