Twitter is flooded with congratulatory messages for RRR director SS Rajamouli after the song Naatu Naatu bagged an Oscar nomination
Things seem to be turning sour in the film industry following the Oscar nominations that began on Tuesday morning. After creating history with Golden Globes, RRR remained a major highlight at the 95th Academy Awards. While Twitter is flooded with congratulatory messages for RRR director SS Rajamouli after the song Naatu Naatu bagged an Oscar nomination, a section of netizens took a jibe at The Kashmir Files director Vivek Agnihotri about his film, which is apparently out of the race now.
Following the big win, Suchitra, wife of Chandrabose, one of the lyricists of Naatu Naatu compared the song’s Oscar entry to the World Cup Victory. However, amid the celebrations, Twitteraties have mocked The Kashmir Files and asked what happened to the controversial film. Many netizens went on to even tag director Vivek Agnihotri as well.
One of the users took a dig and wrote, “If there was an Oscar category for the best Propaganda film, The Kashmir Files would surely win it.” A user took a sarcastic dig and wrote, “Bhai Kashmir files ka kuch ata pata hai… koi tweet nhi aya.” “Actors and producers of ‘The Kashmir File will say, it is an international conspiracy.”
