March 16, 2021: The White Tiger, starring Adarsh Gourav, Priyanka Chopra, and Rajkummar Rao, has been nominated in the 'Best Adapted Screenplay' category for the 93rd Academy Awards.



The White Tiger had released on Netflix in January 2021.



The movie is based on author Aravind Adiga's award-winning novel by the same name.



Interestingly, the news of the nomination was announced by Chopra herself, as she along with her husband Nick Jonas hosted the Oscars nomination event.



Priyanka Chopra took to social media to announce the movie's feat. "Somehow announcing the nomination myself made it so much more special. So so proud," she tweeted.





The global icon has also executive produced the movie.



Gourav also shared the announcement on Instagram. "Officially part of an Oscar-nominated film," he wrote.



And Rao sent his heartiest congratulations to the team of the movie.



Author Adiga and director Ramin Bahrani, who wrote the screenplay, have been friends for 25 long years.



"The movie doesn't condescend to its audience, it doesn't play into easy politics - it doesn't match anyone's agenda per se," Bahrani said about his work.



The movie is up against Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, The Father, One Night in Miami, and Nomadland.
