When everybody is celebrating the success of the political satire, latest reports suggest that Priyanka Chopra and her mother Madhu Chopra are upset with the decision.

If reports are to be believed, the mother-daughter duo had high hopes of their production venture Ventilator making it to the Oscars. The movie received a standing ovation at the New York Film Festival and was also among the 26 entries in the race to the Oscars. But, things didn’t turn out to be as they were expected.

Rajesh Mhapuskar, director of the film stated that Priyanka would be disappointed as she had high hopes with the film.

According to DNA, Mhapuskar said, “Had it been selected, Priyanka would have ensured that it was the most-talked-about film in the run to the Oscars, especially since she is already an established name there. Ventilator was always the favourite baby of their banner.”

He recalled the incident when Priyanka’s mother Madhu called him a day before the verdict and stated that he assured her that Ventilator was the only best film that they could make adding that they were disappointed after the verdict.
