      Filmmaker SS Rajamouli's ambitious pan-India movie RRR has broken all records at the box-office. The film featured Jr. NTR and Ram Charan in the lead roles and was one of the highest grossers of 2022. RRR received love not only in India, but it has been making the world crazy by receiving praise from international critics, technicians, and audiences as well. Now, the team of RRR and SS Rajamouli have begun their campaign for next year's Oscars.

      The makers of RRR have released a fresh "for your consideration" (FYC) poster which requests the Academy to evaluate the movie in 15 key categories. Each year, movie companies circulate these lists and advertisements to attract the Academy's attention and generate excitement around their films. The makers are pushing RRR in 14 major categories.

      India's official entry to the Oscars 2023 was a Gujarati movie, Chhello Show (Last Film Show), which left fans disappointed. And now, the makers still have a chance to try their fate at the Oscars in 2023.
