RRR at Oscars
The massive victory for 'RRR' has only further boosted its chance to win an award at the Oscars 2023. While the film is already being lauded and celebrated across the globe, it was recently screened for the members of the Academy, during which it received a standing ovation.
For those unversed, 'RRR' has found a spot for itself in the Music (Original Song) category for the chartbuster 'Naatu Naatu'. With this, it has become the first Indian song to be shortlisted for Oscars.
'RRR' stars Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, Samuthirakani, Ray Stevenson, Alison Doody, and Olivia Morris. It centres around two real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, their fictional friendship and their fight against the British Raj.
Set in the 1920s, the plot explores the undocumented period in their lives when both the revolutionaries chose to go into obscurity before they began the fight for their country.
