SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus RRR, bankrolled by DVV Danayya under the banner of DVV Entertainment, is a blockbuster not only in India but also globally. People expected it to earn its place in the Oscar race. But it was decided to send Gujarati film ‘Chhelo Show’ (The Last Film Show) from India as the official entry. And now ‘RRR’ has joined the Oscar race as the makers have decided to go for it of their own.
The only Indian movies to have been nominated for the Oscar have been Mother India, Salaam Bombay and Lagaan.
Oscars 2023/ 95th Academy Awards will be held on 12th march, 2023 at Los Angeles’ Dolly Theatre.
