Actor Irrfan Khan is apparently unhappy with Barfi!’s selection as India’s entry for the Oscars in the Best Foreign Language Film category.



Barfi! was chosen from a list of 17 films, including Khan’s Paan Singh Tomar. “I wish we would be as serious about Oscars in our country! In spite of knowing that a few scenes from Barfi! have been copied, our film federation chose it over something which is original. How can that film stand a chance of making it to the nomination list?” Khan was quoted as saying in an interview.
