Director Anurag Basu's Barfi! which brought the yesteryear film appeal to modern day cinema has failed to make the cut for the Oscars. The film which was initially in the running to qualify for the best foreign language film category at the 85th Academy Awards has since dropped out of the race.

Barfi! which featured Ranbir Kapoor as a deaf and mute boy and Priyanka Chopra as an autistic girl earned rave reviews from critics and audiences alike, enjoyed a massive box office collection. However, of the 71 films that qualified for the Oscars from across the world, nine have been shortlisted, which will further compete to make it to the final five nominations. Sadly, Barfi! didn't make it to list.

The nine selected films are Amour (Austria), War Witch, (Canada), No (Chile), A Royal Affair (Denmark), The Intouchables (France), The Deep (Iceland), Kon-Tiki (Norway), Beyond the Hills (Romania) and Sister (Switzerland). The final list of five films will be announced on Jan 10.
