Veteran actor-director Amol Palekar, known for portraying the middle-class Indian in a string of films such as Rajnigandha, Ek Chhoti Si Baat, Chitchor, Gol Maal and Gharaunda in the 1970s, is now the new chairman of India's Oscar jury.

Kapil Chopra, son of late filmmaker Ravi Chopra, plans to remake Basu Chatterje???s 1976 hit romantic comedy film Chhoti Si Baat.

Veteran Bollywood actor and filmmaker Amol Palekar has filed a plea with the Supreme Court challenging pre-censorship of films by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

His last big release - Paheli (2006) - was India's official entry to the Oscars. But since then, Amol Palekar, famous for acting in films like Chhoti Si Baat (1975), Baaton Baaton Mein (1979) and Gol Maal (1975), among others, has been lying low.
