Mumbai: A string of Bollywood personalities including names like Paresh Rawal, Anil Kapoor and Karan Johar have congratulated National Award-winning actor Rajkummar Rao, whose latest release Newton has been selected as India's official entry at the Oscars 2018.

Newton, a Hindi film set against the backdrop of elections in the world's largest democracy, was on Friday announced as India's official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars.

Directed by Amit V. Masurkar, the film was chosen from among 26 titles from different languages by a 14-member jury appointed by the Film Federation of India.
