Modiji shouldn’t take credit for directing RRR, opposition targets ruling party in Budget Parliament session – Times of India ►

The country was celebrating as Indian cinema was honoured at the prestigious Academy Awards on March 12. Naatu Naatu won the Oscar for Best Original Song and The Elephant Whisperers won Best Documentary Short Subject honour at the Oscars.
While congratulating the winners, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun took a dig at the ruling party. While speaking during the Budget Parliament session, he stated, “I also join to congratulate both the awardees – Naatu Naatu and Elephant Whisperers – both of them come from South India. It is great pride for us. We are also very proud in whatever you have said, we are with you. But my only request is that the ruling party should not take credit saying we have directed, we have written the poem, Modiji has directed the film. That is my only request. It is a contribution of the country.”

Deepika Padukone introduced ‘Naatu Naatu’ on stage and won hearts for her stunning international presence. In January, her film ‘Pathaan’ had faced a lot of calls for boycott. Reacting to the same, Shiv Sena (Uddhav) faction MP Priyanka Chaturvedi said, “As all Parliamentarians have congratulated, I also wish to congratulate. I would also like to mention that another history has been scripted, that an Indian actress had introduced ‘Naatu Naatu’ on the stage. She is Deepika Padukone, who was also wearing black. I would also like to congratulate her. Along with this, I would also like to say, since I have mentioned Deepika Padukone, that after winning the Oscars, the boycott culture that goes on in social media platforms, we try and finish this, so that will be a piece of good news for us.”
