Peepli Live, produced by Aamir Khan, will be India’s official entry for Oscar Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category. Directed by journalist Anusha Rizvi, Peepli Live is about farmer suicides in the country and talks about how the media and politicians handle the issue.
Selection committee chairman K.S. Sethumadhavan said that Peepli Live is a reflection of India’s culture and ethos, even as a social satire, it highlights the burning problem of farmer suicides. The subtle humour, which runs throughout the film, sends across the message of social awareness in a far more effective way than a melancholic film would, he added.
