Siddharth Roy Kapur – Official Statement on invitation to join the Academy
*Siddharth Roy Kapur, Indian Film Producer, invited to join the membership of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences*
I’m proud and honoured to have been invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. From ever since I can remember, I’ve been one of those kids who woke up bright and early on a Monday morning early in the year, to be swept away by the magic and the glory of the Academy Awards, taking place on Sunday evening halfway around the world in Hollywood. To now be invited to be a part of that very Academy feels truly surreal. Dreams really do come true, is what I wish I could tell that bleary eyed sleep deprived adrenaline fueled kid I used to be. It’s my turn to say, I’d like to thank the Academy!
