Amitabh, Aamir, Salman, Aishwarya and others invited to join Oscar Academy

Actors Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan,, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, apart from directors like Mrinal Sen, Buddhadeb Dasgupta and Goutam Ghose are among the Indians invited to be a part of the Oscar Academy’s ‘Class of 2017’.

“We’re proud to invite our newest class to the Academy. The entire motion picture community is what we make of it,” Cheryl Boone Isaacs, President of the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences, was quoted as saying on the official Oscar website.

“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,” Isaacs added.

There are 774 new members from 57 countries — a record-breaking number.

The Oscar Academy has noted not just a 359 per cent increase in women invited to join the Academy from 2015-2017, but also a marked rise in people of colour invited – signifying the diversity it was embracing.

From India, there are also actors Irrfan Khan and Salman Khan, Indian costume designer Arjun Bhasin, directors and writers like Anand Patwardhan and Sooni Taraporevala.

Even India-born Mohit Kallianpur and Mahesh Ramasubramanian, who have worked in animation and visual effects of Hollywood films like “Frozen” and “Shrek” respectively, are a part of the exhaustive list.

Among other international high-profile actors newly invited to the Academy are “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot, “Moonlight” Oscar nominee Naomie Harris, Donald Glover, Chris Hemsworth, Riz Ahmed, Adam Driver, Dwayne Johnson, Leslie Jones, Betty White, Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Anna Faris, Margot Robbie, Channing Tatum, Kristen Stewart, Shailene Woodley, Ruth Negga, and Rupert Grint.

Directors include Barry Jenkins, Jordan Peele, David Ayer, Theodore Melfi and the Russo brothers.

The new members invited are part of seven branches — actors, casting directors, costume designers, designers, documentary, executives and film editors.



  • Salman did brilliant in most scene in tubelight. Yes, in some scene he failed miserably. But the film was a nice film. I don’t know why a film about anti-war, brothers separated, belief of Gandhian is a bakwas film. It is a fine movie.


  • SRK is Bap of Bollywood Salman is son and Aamer is grand son of Bollywood ( cose of consistency) not interested in occer ?


  • Krupiya dhyaan de.

    Agar megastar tag haasil Karna ho to yeh achievements honi zaroori hai.
    Debut ek supporting role me disaster ke saath hona chahiye.
    Sabse zyada multistarrers honi chahiye.
    Back to back 6 flops 1 hi decade me honi chahiye.
    Uske baad next decade me bhi 9 back to back flops honi chahiye..
    1 bhi clash jitna nahi. Har box office clash me haarna padta hai. Chahe who rakhi sawant se bhi kyon na ho. 😚
    3 minimum disasters honi chahiye.
    Last but not the least
    Total 50 flops deni chahiye.🤣
    These are the incredible things you need to achieve to earn the Megastar tag for indicine and bollywood arena just like our bhai did. Kya koi itne difficult records achieve kar sakta hai? Of course salman bhaijaan has achieved these incredible records. 😂
