Fatima Bhutto praises ‘Zindagi Tamasha’ representing Pakistan at 2021 Oscars

Famous Pakistani writer Fatima Bhutto commended Sarmad Khoosat’s film Zindagi Tamasha for representing Pakistan at the Oscars 2021.

She tweeted where she applauded Pakistan’s artists calling them “daring” and “fearless” in terms of producing the type of content.

“Pakistan’s greatest cultural strength isn’t our diversity (we are diverse), range (lots of it), or style (brimming with it). But that our artists are daring and fearless.”

“I’m proud Zindagi Tamasha is representing us at the 2021 Oscars. The Academy is lucky to have this film.”

After being banned previously, the movie is awaited by many Pakistanis to be released. Khoosat also shared his feelings associated with the film while speaking on being selected.

“All the heartache that Zindagi Tamasha gave me has somehow restored my faith in the power of art too: the sheer, almost physical power of art to make life imitate it. This announcement, for me, is a very bright light shining at the end of this dark tunnel of a year. I made this film in Pakistan and foremost, for Pakistan, for my people and the misfortune that my people have remained deprived of it weighs quite heavy on my artistic conscience.”

he said.

“Some pride is slowly kicking in though and no matter how far we go with this official selection, Zindagi Tamasha will be representing all of us – our ‘Pakistan’. I feel honored on behalf of my entire team and I am extremely grateful to the committee for finding it worthy enough.”
