Dhobi Ghat set to please Oscar!
Oscar is quite a picky gentleman, and last year Slumdog Millionaire was the flavour of 2009. With the success of a somewhat Bollywood film (cough…cough), Kiran Rao is confident that Dhobi Ghat will be a front runner. Although the film is 40% English, Kiran Rao is sure there is enough Hindi to satisfy the Oscar crew!
The film is centred around the world’s largest outdoor laundry site in Mumbai. The story focuses on the lives of four different main characters. The four lives are intertwined and they each represent a different a person in a different stage of their life.
