Historic Night for Indian cinema at the 95th Academy Awards in Los Angeles
When The Elephant Whisperers was awarded the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short and RRR’s song ‘Naatu Naatu’ was awarded the Academy Award for Best Original Song today, it was one of the greatest moments of glory that Indian film has ever seen in the international arena.
Both “The Elephant Whisperers” and “Rise, Roar, Revolt” are films that were produced in India and tell stories that have their origins firmly planted in the country and its culture. The Elephant Whisperers is a touching documentary that was directed by Kartiki Gonsalves.
It tells the story of Bomman and Bellie, a couple from an indigenous tribe in south India, who devote themselves to taking care of two orphaned baby elephants named Raghu and Ammu, thereby creating a family that is unlike any other.
RRR, on the other hand, is a great cinematic tale that is packed with action, adventure, song, and dancing. It depicts the friendship of two rebels who battle the British in the 1920s. SS Rajamouli is the director of this film.
The members of the Indian film community came together to offer their congratulations to the RRR cast and crew following Naatu Naatu’s big win at the Oscars.
The legendary actors Rajinikanth and Chiranjeevi, as well as the RRR cast members Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn, as well as the Academy Award–winning composer AR Rahman and the actors Hrithik Roshan and Mahesh Babu were among the many celebrities who sent their congratulations after the film’s triumphant showing.
With their January Golden Globe win for Best Original Music, Naatu Naatu have finally conquered the world. During the Oscars, Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava sang live while Lauren Gottlieb danced to the song.
The performance was introduced by Deepika Padukone, who was the third Indian presenter at the event after Persis Khambatta and Priyanka Chopra.
