‘Historical Mistake’ Fans Enraged After Film Federation Of India Doesn’t Send ‘RRR’ For Oscars

SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ has garnered a massive fan following not just in India but across the world. Several international filmmakers and actors have lauded the film for being such a remarkable watch. Considering the ever-growing popularity of the film globally, fans expected that ‘RRR’ would be selected to represent India in the Oscars’ ‘Best International Feature’ category.

But that’s not the case. According to Variety, the Film Federation of India has chosen Pan Nalin’s “Last Film Show” to represent the country at the upcoming 95th Academy Awards and not ‘RRR’.

This news didn’t sit well with film critics, film reviewers, and fans alike who claimed that ‘RRR’ could have been India’s one shot at the Oscars and that the FFI made a grave mistake by not proposing the film to represent our country.

However, the US distributor of ‘RRR’ has chosen to launch a “full awards campaign” for the film. They are also calling on the 10,000 Academy members to consider voting for the film in all categories, reported Variety.
