Amrit Pritam, who has worked as a sound designer in popular Bollywood movies like ‘PK’, ‘English Vinglish’, ‘Ra.One’ and ‘Kaabil’, has been invited to be a jury member for the prestigious Oscar Awards.
It is a dream for every artiste to be a part of the prestigious Oscar Awards. But for Amrit Pritam, the sound designer from Assam, it just turned into a reality.
Amrit, who hails from Jorhat, has been invited to be a jury member for the prestigious Oscar Awards. Amrit was also associated in the sound production team of the Oscar winning film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.
Though the date of the event is yet to be finalised, the organisers of Oscar have unanimously selected the list of jury members, who will decide the winners of the award from different categories. And it is a matter of pride that the votes of an Assamese will decide the Oscar winners this time.
Amrit is one of the 744 jury members who have been nominated for this esteemed position. Amrit shares the list with some of the other notable Indian celebrities, viz, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan, Deepika Padukone, and Aishwarya Rai. It is to be noted that this is the second association of Amrit with the Oscars.
Speaking on the achievement, Amrit said, “Oscar is a pride, and I am extremely grateful and proud for getting a chance to be associated with this event. I am happy that my work has been recognised and it has somehow brought glory and pride for the entire state.“
