Paheli , India's official entry to the Academy Awards this year, would definitely change the views of the people abroad about India and the concept of Indian films, its director Amol Palekar said.

"This film is inherently Indian, linked to the soil of the country. I am sure, it will definitely change the views of the people abroad about India," a visibly excited Palekar told reporters here.



"Everything from its story based on a 'Duvidha', written by Vijaydan Deta, to its screenplay and designing by Sandhya Gokhale is `truly Indian'," he said.

The film's music can be traced to Indian folk and has been backed up by some excellent performances by Shah Rukh Khan , Rani Mukherjee ... to the smallest actor," he said.

Palekar said he felt very contended by the Film Federation of India's citation for Paheli which said "the film is truly Indian and extremely original."

"This is something which makes me feel very very proud," Palekar said.
