Speaking of India’s performance at the Academy Awards so far, the first Oscars, to be by an Indian performer, was for costume design. Bhanu Athaiya won the Oscars in 1983 for designing the costumes in the 1982 historical film Gandhi.

In 2009, a British film set in India, Slumdog Millionaire, won 4 Oscars. Music Maestro AR Rahman, who gave the music to this film, won the Oscars for Best Original Song and Best Original Score.

Gulzar won the prestigious award for Best Lyrics for the same film and Resul Pookutty was awarded the Oscars in the Best Sound Mixing category. Coming back to RRR, the movie is a fictional story based on the lives of two Telugu freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. Ram Charan and Jr NTR played lead roles respectively.

The film collected more than Rs 1,200 crore worldwide. Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn and Shriya Saran also starred in the film. This lyrical composition of MM Keeravani’s ‘Naatu Naatu’, energetic rendition by singers Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava, unique choreography by Prem Rakshith and lyrics by Chandrabose are all the elements that make this ‘RRR’ mass song a perfect dance madness.
