Nandita’s Zwigato in Academy Library


Mumbai: Actor turned director Nandita Das recently made a heartfelt movie called Zwigato with comedian Kapil Sharma.

Even though the movie couldn’t perform well at the Box Office, everyone appreciated Kapil’s performance. The film has now earned a spot in the permanent core collection of the Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Nandita took to Instagram to share the news and made a point to call out OTT players, saying that despite rave reviews, the movie still hasn’t found buyers on OTT.

She wrote, “I was most surprised and delighted to receive an email from the Library of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (The Oscars!) about wanting the script of Zwigato for their Permanent Core Collection. It is a happy reminder that the film is relevant and glad we made it. Hope OTT platforms are reading this! I think it’s time to give the audience the opportunity to see Zwigato.!”

The film which was shot completely in Bhubaneswar was premiered at Toronto Worldwide Film Celebrations in 2022 and is the story of a man who takes up the job of a food delivery agent after getting fired as the floor manager of a factory.

The Odisha Government had also declared the movie Tax free in the state.
