Abhijeet Gholap released his latest production Hou De Jarasa Usheer in California last month, after it was confirmed that the film has been sent to compete for the Oscars 2013. By far, this is the only Marathi film to be nominated in the Best Film category. Earlier, films like Shwaas and Harschandrachi Factory had been nominated in the Foreign Film category at Oscars. Academy of Motion Pictures has conveyed their interest to acquire the screenplay of this movie for preserving it in their research library. "We always look for original and enticing subjects. This storage will be for the Permanent Core collection. The scripts in our collection are made accessible for research purposes only; students, filmmakers, writers and actors are among our regular patrons. As a research library, we do not allow materials to circulate; they may only be studied inside the reading room. Also, we forbid any photocopying of screenplays," says Gregory Walsh, librarian at Academy of Motion Pictures, California. Hou De Jarasa Usheer will release in Maharashtra on January 18 next year. The star cast features industry veteran Sadashiv Amrapurkar in a central role along with Sharvari Jamenis, Aditi Sharangdhar, Chinmay Mandalekar and Aishvarya Narkar. The film will also mark the debut of Abhyang Kuwalekar and Raj Ranavare. The film has seven songs composed by Nakul and includes a rap song as well.
