Sonu Sood’s ‘Xuanzang’ has been selected as China’s official entry for Oscars 2017

Though his debut production venture ‘Tutak Tutak Tutiya’ had failed to impress, actor Sonu Sood is happy and proud as his international film ‘Xuanzang’ has been selected to be the official entry for the 89th Academy Awards. This is a Chinese film and Sonu Sood‘s first project to be picked up for this specific platform. And also this film marks the debut of the actor in Chinese movies.

Sharing his happiness, Sonu talked about it to an agency saying, “It feels superb. I was remembering those days when I was doing the costume fittings for the film. The entire team had come and then we shot and then we went for the premiere… We never realised that it is going to be such a huge surprise for us in the coming months. I feel very proud and honoured to be part of such a huge film.”

“When you come from a very small town, watching the Oscars is such a huge high. We used to wait for it to come on TV and now when your film is an official entry to such a huge platform. So we feel blessed and really nice. Someone somewhere is wishing for me. Wishes from my parents are there,” added the actor.

Apart from Sonu Sood, B-Town actresses Neha Sharma and Mandana Karimi also star in the movie playing pivotal parts.

‘Xuanzang’ is a Chinese historical adventure film based on Xuanzang’s seventeen-year overland journey to India where Sonu Sood is seen essaying the role of King Harshavardhan.

Talking about films, Sonu Sood will be next seen in ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ sharing the screen space with superstar Jackie Chan.
