SS Rajamouli’s RRR – starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan in the lead, has been making a lot of noise ever since it hit theatres in India in March. Not just were its box office numbers impressive, but it also received immense love and praise from critics and fans in the country and abroad. Owing to the same, it became the most talked about film for Oscars 2023 – however, it was snubbed as India’s official entry to the Academy in favour of Gujarati film Chhello Show (Last Film Show).

But the makers of the epic period drama are leaving no stone unturned to take it to the Oscars. Yes, the makers have begun the film’s journey for the Oscars. They have begun pushing the film by joining the ‘For your consideration’ (FYC) campaign and sent out 14 nominations to the Academy Awards in various categories. Read on to know more.
