7 Highly Educated Indian Cricketers
When the list of Academy memberships came out, it surprised many. From Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Salman Khan to Irrfan Khan and Deepika Padukone almost everyone was invited to join the Academy and vote in on the Oscars. However, it was King Khan whose name did not make it to the list.
The announcement was made when Cheryl Boone Isaacs, President of the Academy of Motion Pictures, said “We're proud to invite our newest class to the Academy. The entire motion picture community is what we make of it. It's up to all of us to ensure that new faces and voices are seen and heard, and to take a shot on the next generation the way someone took a shot on each of us.”
Despite the fact that 774 invitations were sent out, we wondered why SRK wasn't qualified for the this. It goes without saying that SRK rules millions of hearts and him not being invited will create a ruckus on social media.
After receiving lots of criticism, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences finally released a statement to an online portal which will raise people's BP up!
See ahead what oscars revealed.
Here's what the statement said, “The basic requirement is that a candidate must have demonstrated exceptional achievement in the field of theatrical motion pictures."
Its really insulting for SRK.
Can you believe something like this being said for a man who changed the wave of Indian cinema The Badshah of Bollywood is popular all around the globe.
