ADIL HUSSAIN'S 'WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY' MADE IT TO THE OSCARS

Actors Adil Hussain and Ekavali Khanna starrer 'What Will People Say' has been declared as the Norwegian official entry into the Oscar 2019. Adil broke the news on his Facebook account on Tuesday evening where he wrote; “Our film What Will People Say is just been declared as the Norwegian official entry into Oscar 2019. Big Congratulations to Iram Haq, Maria Mozhdah, Ekavali Khanna and cast and Crew members! We hope that our film will finally be one of the films to be Nominated in Foreign Film Category at the Oscars in 2019,”. In August, Adil won the Best Actor award at the Amanda Award also known as Norwegian National Awards which is the top national film honor of the Scandinavian country and dedicated it to Goalpara in Assam, his hometown. Talking about the experience Ekavali said; “When we were shooting the film, we knew we are making a very compelling film but had no idea that it will receive such abundant love across the globe, and the official selection from Norway is such an honor. We have our fingers crossed for the nomination,”. Directed by Iram Haq, What Will People Say is set in Pakistan and Norway and traces how a Pakistani immigrant family deals with its teenage daughter’s affair with a local boy in Norway. The family deals with this by sending the daughter away to stay with her extended family in Pakistan. How she faces the rigid culture in comparison to her life as a Norwegian teenager is the crux of the story.
