Readers would be aware that there was a major uproar about the films that were nominated from India for the Best Foreign Language Film in the Oscars. Many of them expressed their disappointment on social media when RRR didn’t make the cut with many even requesting the jury to reconsider their decision.
Talking of RRR, the film also grabbed the attention of many international filmmakers and film industry veterans who appreciated the Indian period drama for its effects and storyline. Besides Junior NTR and Ram Charan who play the male leads in the film, it also features Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, and Ajay Devgn in pivotal roles along with some foreign actors. Set against the backdrop of the British regime in India, the film released on March 24, 2022 in Indian and other major international markets.
