Rajkumar Rao’s Newton finally hit the theatres today after some delay. But that is not the news. Reports have come in that this film is India’s official entry to the Oscars this year. Speaking about the same, the elated actor said, It’s India’s official entry to the Oscars. It’s true. I am elated and super thrilled that we made this film with so much love and passion. I am so glad that people are appreciating that effort and are recognizing the sincerity of a non-theatre film.”
Talking about his expectations from the film, he said, “Expectations are always the same that more and more people come and watch the film but I don’t want to only think of that because that is something which is beyond my control. I can’t really control that. I can only control what we do with my films, the wave is changing and I am hopeful that the film will be watched by a lot of people.”
Along with Newton, Aditi Rao Hydari and Sanjay Dutt’s Bhoomi and Shraddha Kapoor’s Haseena Parkar also release today.
