A portion of the crowd said “RRR” should have been India’s official entry for this year’s Oscars because of its brilliant cinematography, important story, and outstanding performances. The jury chose to submit a Gujarati film titled “Chhello Show” by Pan Nalin as this year’s entry to the 95th Academy Awards last week rather than the SS Rajamouli-directed picture. According to reports, the US distributor, Variance Films, for RRR has requested the Academy to consider the film ‘in all categories.
The film will be submitted for nominations under Best Picture, Original Screenplay (SS Rajamouli and V Vijayendra Prasad), Lead Actor (Jr NTR and Ram Charan), Supporting Actors (Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt) Original Song (Naatu Naatu) Original Score (MM Keeravani) Cinematography (KK Senthilkumar).
Alia Bhatt can’t get any more desperate. Here she is trying to “manifest” her way to get an Oscar for a role which was “supporting” but if you blink, you’ll miss her whole flowerpot role in #RRR
Her antics are so embarrassing at this point. #AliaBhatt #RRRForOscars pic.twitter.com/eUdh1Sv0S4

While this started a brand-new conversation on social media, the justification one of the jury members provided for not voting for “RRR” just served to fuel it. When the film was released, appreciation for it came from everyone—celebrities, cinema enthusiasts, and critics. The movie was released in March this year, and had Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, Shriya Saran, Samuthirakani, Ray Stevenson, Alison Doody, Olivia Morris and Chatrapathi Sekhar, among others.
Jr. NTR and Ram Charan, who starred as the primary actors, received praise after the movie’s release. The fictional film follows Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, two Indian revolutionaries. SS Rajamouli, who previously achieved national fame for the Baahubali trilogy, directed the historical action drama “RRR,” which was scripted by K Vijayendra Prasad. The film is continuously gaining popularity and receiving rave reviews from all around the world. Millions of people watched it worldwide, and it brought in more than Rs 1100 crores at the box office.
