Released theatrically in March, it raised over £110 million at the global box office. The Hindi version of the film premiered on Netflix on May 20 and soon became the most popular movie from India on the streamer globally.
Despite huge success, ‘RRR’ was not selected as India's official entry for Oscars 2023. So the makers applied in 14 categories under 'For your consideration' campaign. The team has asked for consideration for the Oscars in categories including - Best Picture (DVV Danayya), Best Director (SS Rajamouli), Best Actor (Jr NTR and Ram Charan), Best Supporting Actor (Ajay Devgn), Best Supporting Actress (Alia Bhatt) and more.
