'Secret Ballot' director Babak Payami extends best wishes to Amit Masurkar's 'Newton'

'Newton' had come under the scanner for allegedly being a rip-off of 'Secret Ballot' but the director of the 2001 Iranian film, Babak Payami, has wished Amit Masurkar upon its selection as India's official entry to the Oscars.

Amid reports that the film has striking similarities with 'Secret Ballot', director-producer Anurag Kashyap came forward in support of the team.

He shared a screenshot of an Indian journalist's interview with Payami on Facebook, with permission, where Payami said he was happy for the selection of 'Newton' at the Oscars and had no issues if the two films shared thematic similarities.
