Aamir confident of Taare Zameen Par winning Oscar this year

By Khabrein.Info Correspondent,

Mumbai, Sept 24, 2008: Aamir Khan is confident that Taare Zameen Par will win Oscar award this year. Earlier last week Aamir Khan’s supremely successful film Taare Zameen Par was selected as India’s official entry for this year’s Oscar award.

Aamir Khan has been winning accolades for this film like no other film he has done or produced. He and the child actor Darsheel have won many awards among them for the film that focuses on special kids with special needs.

Darsheel earlier this year made history by being nominated in the best actor category, the first such honour for a child actor in the 54-year-old film awards history. Never before had a child artiste competed with established actors like Shah Rukh Khan for the best actor's crown.

As the loveable dreamer with a learning disability in Aamir Khan's directorial debut, he won the critics' prize for best actor in the Filmfare Awards earlier this year.

The focus on children and family cinema has dramatically improved in Bollywood with more and more production houses venturing into the genre. And Darsheel gives hope to child actors and widens the scope for more child-centric films in the future.
