To Kill a Tiger: A Story of Justice from Jharkhand Nominated for the Oscars


The 96th Academy Awards nominations have been unveiled, and Oppenheimer leads the pack with a staggering 13 nominations. Following closely are Poor Things, Killers of the Flower Moon, and Barbie with 11, 10, and 8 nominations, respectively. While India’s official entry to the Oscars, 2018: Everyone is a hero, and the independent submission, 12th Fail, missed the mark, a notable documentary set in India has secured a nomination. To Kill a Tiger, directed by Indian-origin Canadian filmmaker Nisha Pahuja, is nominated in the Best Documentary Feature Film category.

Heartfelt Story of Justice from Jharkhand

Set in Jharkhand, To Kill a Tiger narrates the gripping story of Ranjit, a father on an unyielding quest for justice for his 13-year-old daughter. The young girl was tragically abducted and sexually assaulted by three men. The documentary, produced by Nisha Pahuja, David Oppenheim, Cornelia Principe, and Andy Cohen, boasts executive producers Dev Patel and Mindy Kaling, both Indian-origin Hollywood actors. Nisha Pahuja, originally from Delhi, has made a mark in the film industry with previous works like the Emmy-nominated documentary, The World Before Her, the three-part series Diamond Road, and the feature-length documentary Bollywood Bound.
