RRR’s hopes for an Academy Award seem to have been reignited. The makers have revealed that they have submitted the film to the Academy for consideration in general categories.

The announcement was made on the official social media handles of the film. In the post, the makers spoke of how overwhelmed they were that RRR was able to represent Indian cinema globally, transcending cultural barriers and breaking numerous box office records. After thanking audiences for their support, the makers revealed that the film had been submitted to the Academy for an Oscar consideration in the general category.

Check out the post below:

According to a report in Variety, the makers have submitted the film for consideration in more than ten categories, including Best Picture, Director (SS Rajamouli), Best Actor (for Jr NTR and Ram Charan), Original Screenplay (SS Rajamouli and Vijayendra Prasad), Best Supporting Actor (Ajay Devgn), Best Supporting Actress (Alia Bhatt), Best Original Song (Naatu Naatu), Best Original Score (MM Keeravaani), Cinematography, Production Design, Film Editing, Costume Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, Sound and Visual Effects.

RRR had also been considered as India’s official entry to the Oscars in the Best International Feature Film category. However, the film had been beaten out for the nomination by Gujarati film Chhello Show (Last Film Show). The other Indian films considered in the category were reportedly Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra: Part One Shiva, Vivek Agnihotri's The Kashmir Files, and R Madhavan's directorial debut Rocketry: The Nambi Effect.

The SS Rajamouli directorial has been on the receiving end of praise, from both domestic and international audiences, ever since its release in March. Edgar Wright, Patton Oswalt and Scott Derrickson, among others, have lauded the film.

RRR, which also featured Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, Alison Doody, Olivia Morris and Ray Stevenson in pivotal roles, is available for streaming on ZEE5, Disney+ Hotstar and Netflix.
