A Bollywood love story based on a rural Indian folk tale, starring top actor Shah Rukh Khan, will represent India at the Oscars next year, film selectors said.

"Paheli" (Riddle), in which Khan plays the role of a lover who is actually a ghost, has been selected by the Film Federation of India to represent the country at the Oscars in the foreign films category.

"The film represents Indian ethos and we found it to be the right candidate to represent India at the Oscars," said Vinod Pandey, acting federation chairman.

"Paheli" failed at the box office when released earlier this year.

Current mood: cinematic ennui.
