ACTRESS PRIYANKA CHOPRA SAYS THERE SHOULD BE MORE CATEGORY FOR FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILMS AT OSCARS :

Actress Priyanka Chopratoday said that Academy should broaden its category when it comes to giving recognition to foreign language films at the Oscars.  Priyanka is one of the newest members the Academy of Motion Picture of Arts & Sciences (AMPAS).  “I am grateful to the Academy for including such diverse amount of people from around the world. They ask us our opinions when we are the member of the academy. My view and opinion is that it opens itself up to nominations for foreign language films outside of just one category,” Priyanka told. “I hope that is something which happens because there are so many films which come from the world, even Indian films. When our talent has won awards, it has been for films not made by India, because the opportunities are less. I hope that is something that changes and I hope I can contribute to that.”  Apart from Priyanka, other Indian stars who have been invited to join the Academy and vote in the Oscars include the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Goutam Ghose, Buddhadeb Dasgupta, Salman Khan, Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone.
