Rao also feels Newton enjoys an advantage owing to the universal appeal of its subject.

The same report states that Reddy led a 14 member jury that watched 26 films over the past one week to select India's official Oscar entry. Apart from Rajkummar Rao, the movie features Pankaj Tripathi, Sanjai Mishra and Anjali Patil. "I'm proud of Amit and Rajkummar for making Newton with so much sincerity", he said, delighted to be taking the baton from close friend and National Award-winning actor-producer Dhanush whose hard-hitting Tamil film, Visaranai, was in the Oscar race a year ago.

"It is huge. I am really happy".

"Newton" has been chosen as India's official selection for Oscars 2018. "So I am sure Aamir sir will help us a lot", IANS quoted Rajkummar Rao as saying.

Rajkummar told PTI, "It is a really honest film and we are already getting an overwhelming response". Newton's writer-director Amit Masurkar tried to say something new and his film script was the biggest star. And the same kind of sincerity we have made Newton with, it's resonating with the audience. But shockingly, people have also found HD version of the film on the internet and shared its link on their social media handles.

"Hansal Mehta tweeted "#Newton is India's entry to the Oscars.

Newton revolves around Newton Kumar, a rookie government clerk who is sent on election duty to a naxal-controlled town in the conflict-ridden jungles of Chhattisgarh, India.

Recent official entries have included Liar's Dice (2014), Court (2015), and the Tamil film Visaranai (2016). There are rumours doing round on Internet that the Indian film is similar to a popular Iranian film called Secret Ballot.
