Ram Charan spoke about his film RRR at the G20 Tourism Working Group meeting. He said, "RRR is not just my film. It is India's film." He also spoke about how proud he is about the fact that both Eastern and Western worlds have shown interest in RRR. Speaking at the Summit, Ram Charan recalled his connection with Kashmir. Ram Charan said that he has been coming to Kashmir since 1986. "Dad (Chiranjeevi) has extensively shot in Kashmir. This place has something magical. It draws me. It is such a surreal place to visit. It has been 95 years since Indian films started, it will take another 95 years to explore Kashmir. I want this paradise to remain like this," he said.
RRR’s Naatu Naatu, which was nominated alongside songs from the likes of Rihanna, Diane Warren, Mitski and Lady Gaga, scored the Oscar in the Best Original Song category. This was the first time when an Indian production scored an Oscar in the Best Original Song category. The Oscars 2023 was fruitful for India as Shaunak Sen's All That Breathes and Kartiki Gonsalves' The Elephant Whisperers were also nominated. The Elephant Whisperers also won the Oscar in the Best Documentary Short Film category.
