This setback adds to the historical challenges Indian cinema faces in the international arena. The last film officially nominated from India and made it to the top five was Ashutosh Gowariker's Lagaan in 2001. Last year, Pan Nalin's Gujarati film Chhello Show was shortlisted but faced a similar fate.
