New Delhi: SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus RRR starring Ram Charan and Jr. NTR-starring created a havoc not only in India, but across the world. Following director’s idea that art transcends language barriers, RRR won over critics across the world and is now eyeing Oscars nominations. RRR is nominated in 4 categories, according to a prediction list published by the well-known international magazine Variety.
RRR has received nominations for the 2023 Academy Awards in two categories, according to Variety’s predictions. Best International Feature and Best Original Song are two categories in which RRR could receive nominations (Dosti). Additionally, Jr. NTR and Ram Charan are recognised on the projected list as Best Actor nominees. However, the Academy has not yet released its final list of nominees, which will appear in the list.
The Oscars prediction list has ignited the internet, and fans are unable to control their excitement. It is undoubtedly a source of pride that RRR and two Telugu stars will compete fiercely with Hollywood A-listers. So, keep an eye out for the final Oscars list and wait for it.
No Indian film has received an Academy Award nomination in the last 21 years. The most recent example was Lagaan, a historical sports drama starring Aamir Khan. It’s interesting that during the impending award season, another anti-colonial Indian film has captured the attention of the West.
In the movie RRR, which is set in 1920s India, Ram Charan and Jr. NTR play two rebels who face off against the might of the British empire. Additionally, after Baahubali: The Conclusion, the movie became Rajamouli’s second consecutive release to gross over Rs 1000 crore globally.
