Rang De Basanti, Indian's official entry to the Oscars in the Foreign Film category, will also be competing in seven other mainline categories at the prestigious awards, producer of the film Ronnie Screwvala said on Sunday.

Rang de Basanti, chosen by the Film Federation of India on Monday as India's nominee to the Oscars in the Best Foreign Film category, will now also compete in seven other categories. The categories include Best Film, Best Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Screenplay, Best Editing, Best Art Direction and Best Sound Design at the 79th Annual Academy Awards, Screwvala said.“

There is only one official entry per country in the coveted foreign language film category. Besides this, we have also applied in 7 Mainline Categories,” he said. Talking about the decision to send the film in other categories, Screwvala said, the day Rang De Basanti was selected as India’s entry for the Best Foreign Film category, we had decided to send the film in other categories.
