Though RRR cannot be the official entry to the Oscars from India, it was selected for the Oscars for Naatu Naatu song. Indians are hopeful that the magnum opus will create history and win the Oscars as well. Social media is filled with posts and messages ending the best wishes for the film.
Amid this Telangana BJP chief Bandi Sanjay Kumar surprised many by congratulating the RRR team. He met singer Rahul Sipligunj who was one of the singers of the Naatu Naatu song. Sharing pictures of meeting the singer he said that he celebrated the nomination of the song for the Oscars.
Surprisingly, Bandi Sanjay Kumar earlier threatened that theatres will be burnt if RRR releases. Reacting to the teaser introducing Komaram Bheem's character played by Jr NTR, he said that history is being distorted and they will not allow this to happen.
Tribal leader Komaram Bheem fought the Nizam who ruled the Hyderabad Princely state against his atrocities. In this process, he made the ultimate sacrifice. Bheem is a celebrated personality in the Telangana region like Alluri Sitarama Raju.
But Komaram Bheem was shown as a Muslim character in Rajamouli's directorial. As it is a fictional story of two celebrated personalities the makers took cinematic liberty and created a story that talks about what happens when Komaram Bheem and Alluri Sita Rama Raju who belong to two different timeframes meet each other and become friends.
As this was not revealed earlier, BJP in Telangana created a big controversy and demanded a ban on the film. However, all the doubts were cleared on this when the film was released. Earlier he also celebrated the Golden Globe Award for Naatu Naatu song. Taking to social media Bandi Sanjay said that the whole nation is feeling proud of this.
