When Peepli went Missing

Peepli Live Amir Khan’s film was not entered on the Nomination List, What went wrong ? Anusha Rizvi who is upset because of such incident.

When asked Anusha Rizvi to speak about this, she said,

I heard it, too. And I have absolutely no idea why the film wasn’t entered.

I want to clarify that the directorate and the jury members of the National Awards have been unfairly targetted.

What can they do if the film was not entered by the production house? It was never submitted. I was not consulted about it. I got to know about it after the National Awards was announced.

I am also disappointed for all the people involved.

They have worked very hard on the film. The directorate and the jury members have all expressed concern over it and said they stand by the film. But, what can we do? These decisions solely rest with the producer.

The same happen earlier in 1996 when Khamoshi release, the producers forgot to enter the movie for National Awards, Manisha Koirala was supposed to be awarded at the function, Jury was keen on giving the award to her for best performance, but this didnt happen becasuse of the faux pas by the producers.
