DUBAI: Kamasutra 3D, the most awaited movie of the year, co-produced and project designed by Sharjah-based film maker Sohan Roy, has made its grand entry at the 86th Academy Awards (Oscar) with the selection in three categories.
The film has been the subject of intense speculations and controversies for some time during its production in India.
It was selected in three categories – Best Motion Picture, Original Score and five songs in contention for the original song category, Roy said in a press conference held in Dubai.
Written and directed by Rupesh Paul and presented by Dr George John (GJ Entertainments – UAE) at the Production House RPPL, Kamasutra 3D is the only movie with five songs after The Great Gatsby, to be selected in the Original Song category.
The songs include – Aygiri Nandini, Saawariya, I Felt, Of Soil and Har HarMahadeva – composed by UAE-born and brought up music director, Sachin along with Chennai based Sreejith.
Its lyrics are penned by Rupesh Paul and Pratyush Prakash. Apart from Kamasutra 3D, no other movie from India is contending in the music category list.
The press conference was also attended by sports medicine specialist John, the “key hole surgeon” who travels with celebrity Hollywood stars and sports heroes and the founder of GJ Entertainment in Dubai.
The movie stars Sherlyn Chopra, Milind Gunaji and King Mal Khan.
Ace cinematographer Sapan Narula has given life to the frames of the film, Markus Lanxinger has mastered the stereoscopy for the film, and dance moves in the movie have been choreographed by Saroj Khan and Master Shiva Shankar.
Kamasutra 3D makes a 7th mark on cinema with the use of Auro 3D sound mixing, Roy added.
Kamasutra 3D has been slated for a May 23, 2014 release after its premiere.
