SP Balasubrahmanyam's Midhunam to go to Oscars?

The Telugu Film Producers' Council is said to have recommended Telugu films Midhunam and Sri Jagadguru Adi Shankara to the Film Federation of India (FFI) as contenders for India's official entry to the Academy Awards for best foreign language film category.

Midhunam, which is about the relationship between an elderly couple, featured only two characters essayed by singer-actor SP Balasubramanyam (of Maha Yedabidangi and Hetthare Hennanne Herabeku fame) and Lakshmi. The final decision to screen the film, however, rests with the FFI. Midhunam, which was directed by Tanikella Bharani, was not a commercially successful film, but earned critical acclaim from audiences and critics alike.
