Adil Hussain's What Will People Say enters Oscar 2019 fray

The film traces how a Pakistani immigrant family deals with its teenage daughter's affair with a local boy in Norway

Published: 05th September 2018

Actors Adil Hussain and Ekavali Khanna starrer What Will People Say has been declared as the Norwegian official entry into the Oscar 2019.

"When we were shooting the film, we knew we are making a very compelling film but had no idea that it will receive such abundant love across the globe, and the official selection from Norway is such an honour. We have our fingers crossed for the nomination," said Ekavali.

Adil broke the news on his Facebook account on Tuesday evening.

 


In August, Adil won the Best Actor award at the Amanda Award or the Norwegian National Awards -- the Scandinavian country's top national film honour and dedicated it to Goalpara in Assam, his hometown. Directed by Iram Haq, What Will People Say is set in Pakistan and Norway and traces how a Pakistani immigrant family deals with its teenage daughter's affair with a local boy in Norway.
