Oscar-winning film producer Guneet Monga says that one should understand the process and be well versed with the business if they expect to be close to the final round of the much-celebrated film awards ceremony. This year, the South Korean film “Parasite” swept the Oscars winning Best Film, Best Director as well as Best International Feature Film among other Oscars, while India’s entry “Gully Boy” couldn’t even make it to the final list of nominees in the last-mentioned category. Guneet Monga, who earlier won an Oscar in the Best Documentary (Short Subject) for the film “Period. End Of Sentence”, said: “I believe ‘Parasite’ winning the Oscar is the sign of how the world cinema is changing, and becoming diverse by all means. Stories are getting celebrated from all over the world, even from parts of the world that are under-represented. India is lusting after an Oscar, but I think we are missing the practical point. See, lusting after the Oscars won’t get you the trophy, getting close to the final could happen by bringing an American distributor for the nominated film on board.” (IANS)
