Why is Sircar angry with 'Vicky Donor' producers?
The Film Federation of India (FFI) announced Saturday that Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz starrer will be India's official entry for the Oscars in the Best Foreign Language Film category.
"I'm really happy for Ranbir Kapoor, Anurag Basu and the whole team of 'Barfi!' on the film's selection as India's entry to the Oscars. Congratulations!," said Sircar in a statement.
"However, as far as my film 'Vicky Donor' is concerned, I'm very disheartened, disappointed and angry that one of this year's most original high concept story was not even considered by the producers of the film to be sent for the jury's consideration," added the director.
Actor John Abraham's JA Entertainment co-produced 'Vicky Donor' with Eros International. Made at a shoestring budget of Rs.5 crore, the film on sperm donation rocked the box office by collecting Rs.45 crore.
"I was in complete shock when the jury told us that they have not received the film from Eros for consideration...this purely shows their disregard for a film that brought them commercial success as well as critical acclaim," Sircar said.
"I would also like to warn all directors to beware of producers and watch out for their films at every stage. For somebody like me and the kind of films I make, what makes me happiest is the critical acclaim much more than the commercial gains. I sincerely hope that Eros in future does not repeat this mistake with any other film," said Sircar.
