It is India’s official entry for the 2019 Oscars, in the Best Foreign Language film classification. The declaration was made by the Film Federation of India on the morning of 22 September 2018, Saturday.

Village Rockstars was made more than four years, shot on a handheld camera, and utilized a cast of non-performing artists, sourced nearly in totality, from the town of Kalardiya. The movie, which won the National Award for Best Film prior this year, takes after the tale of a ten-year-old girl with dreams to shape her own musical band, who goes looking for an electric guitar in her town.
No Indian film has ever won an Oscar. The last Indian film that made it to the last five in the Best Foreign Film classification list was Lagaan in 2001. The 91st Academy Awards is all set to conduct on February 24, 2019.
