Pakistan submits 'Cake' for 91st Oscar race
Pakistan on Tuesday joined the Oscar race by officially choosing 'Cake' to be submitted under the 'foreign language film' category for the 91st Oscar Awards.
Terming the film as trendy, Abbasi expects more people to come up with similar stories.
Pakistan first submitted 'The Day Shall Dawn' to the Oscars in 1959, but post its 1963 submission, the country's cinema industry went through a rough patch.
It was in 2013 that they started submitting films again under the said category. However, they are yet to be nominated for an Oscar.
