Oscars 2022: Team 'RRR' applies to The Academy for consideration in general category

Still from RRR


SS Rajamouli's film 'RRR' took the box office by storm and was loved by the audience across the nation. However, the film's popularity was not restricted to Indian borders. When the film was released in America, the audience there could not stop praising the film. With massive international recognition, most expected it to be India's official entry for Oscars. However, the Film federation surprised people with its selection. A couple of weeks back it was announced that the Gujarati film, 'Chhello Show' will be India's official entry for Oscars 2022. While most thought it shattered RRR's dream for an Oscar, the team has decided to compete in the general category.
