'RRR" stars Junior NTR and Ram Charan with Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn doing extended cameos. It centers on two real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Rama Rao), and their fight against the British Raj.
The movie turned out to be one of the hits of 2022 in the Indian cinema by minting over Rs 1,000 crore at the worldwide box office.
The fans of Junior NTR and Ram Charan were disappointed after the Film Federation of India as they choose Gujarati film 'Chhello Show' as India's official entry to Oscars 2023.
Although it failed to become India's entry to the Oscars, the movie, except for Best Motion Picture, can be nominated for other mainstream categories.
