The Good Road is director Gyan Correa’s first. The Gujarati film was released for a limited time in Gujarat on July 19. Although the film has not been screened in the rest of the country, Sonali felt that the timing was not right for that anyway and they may think about re-screening it at theatres around the country once it has achieved some level of recognition through exposure at the Oscars.

The Oscar selection comes as a surprise to many people, both film-lovers and B-town celebs, since Anurag Kashyap’s The Lunchbox has been a strong contender and a favourite with critics and fans alike. But that’s not the only reason. The Good Road came under media flack when many claimed that the story was about child prostitution.

Sonali said that the child prostitution angle was just one part of the story and there was a lot more to the film than just that. She also said that her role in the movie was quite modest, and that the protagonist’s were two kids and a truck driver. However, since she was the most famous face in the film, she was naturally picked as the spokesperson for it and would thus be representing the movie at the Academy Awards.
Chief Minister of Gujarat Narendra Modi has expressed his excitement at having a Gujarati movie going to the Oscars.
