Mumbai: Calling it the best film of the year, Karan Johar has supported the selection of Marathi movie Court as India's official entry to Oscars next year.

The courtroom drama, directed by filmmaker Chaitanya Tamhane, who made his debut with the movie has been selected as the official entry to the prestigious awards after beating 30 films including PK, Haider and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

This is what the filmmaker posted on Twitter on September 24:

The independent and low-budget drama received widespread praise from critics, who hail it as one of the best movies to emerge from the country in recent times.
