Rajesh Mhapuskar, director of Ventilator told to our sources thst, “I guess, Priyanka must be even more disappointed because she was always ambitious about the film. Had it been selected, she would have ensured that it was the most-talked-about film in the run to the Oscars, especially since she is already an established name there. Ventilator was always the favorite baby of their banner.”
The filmmaker also revealed that the entire team of Ventilator was impatiently awaiting for the result on September 22 for the Oscar’s entry. He even talked about the excitement of Priyanak and Madhu Chopra when she called him up the night before the verdict was announced, “I told her not to worry, and assuring her that only the best film would make it. We were a bit disappointed when we got to know about the verdict, the next day.” Rajesh Mhapuskar Further added.
