Aditya Modak as Sharad in “The Disciple”, the story of a classical music student torn between tradition and the desire for quick validation.

Critically acclaimed Marathi film “The Disciple” and its lead actor, classical musician Aditya Modak, are among the New York Times’ critics’ picks for the 2022 Academy Awards nominations. While Modak has been named under the Best Actor nominees’ wishlist, the film would’ve been nominated for Best Picture and Best Screenplay, if the NYT critics had their way.

The film is directed by Chaitanya Tamhane. Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón is the executive producer.
