New Delhi: Actor Rajkummar Rao, who has been on an award-winning spree, has added another trophy to his shelf by bagging the Variety Asia Rising star honour at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IIFM) in Macau.

The 33-year-old actor took to his Twitter handle to announce the news by posting a picture, in which he can be seen kissing the trophy.

He captioned the post as, "Won the @Variety Asia Rising star award at #IFFM in Macau. Thank you @Variety magazine for this honour."

However, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, on Thursday, unveiled the nine films that will compete for a nomination for the best foreign-language film Oscar.

Rajkummar Rao's 'Newton,' the official entry for Oscars 2018 from India, has not made it to the list.
