Days after the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), directed by Pan Nalins and whose film titled The Last Film Show in English, was selected as India's official entry into the Oscars 2023, the internationally acclaimed film Chhello Show, titled Last Film Show in English, has raised concerns that it is not an Indian film.BN Tiwari, President of FWICE, told ETimes, The film is not an Indian film and the selection process is inaccurate.There were so many Indian films out there, such as RRR and The Kashmir Files, but the jury opted for a foreign film that was bought by Siddharth Roy Kapur.What does the FWICE suggest?

Half of them are on the internet for years, and the bulk of them do not watch the film and vote is done.According to Tiwari, if the last film show is shown, it would place the spotlight on India, which is well-known for its ability to produce the most number of films.Tiwari and Thakur, after the press conference, also announced that they would be writing to Anurag Thakur, the Minister of Information and Broadcasting, to discuss the same.The coming-of-age film Chhello Show, which has received critical acclaim around the world, has defeated SS Rajamoulis RRR and Vivek Agnihotris' The Kashmir Files to become the country's official contender in the Best Foreign Film category at the forthcoming Academy Awards.

The final film show will compete against other international contenders like Koreas Decision to Leave and Mexicos Bardo, who are already favorites to win the highest award.
