Talking about the Oscar nomination for Naatu Naatu, Ram said that if they win, he probably wouldn’t be able to believe it. He added that someone would have to wake him up and tell him to go on stage to collect it. “It is not just our success, it is the Indian film industry’s success,” he stated. The Oscars are going to take place next month on March 12.
The actor sure hopes more Indian films come to the Oscars and Golden Globes. Complimenting director SS Rajamouli for the film, he shared how the director told him films are about emotions. “And this film has all sorts of emotion and connects very well with audiences. His father also worked on the script,” the star spoke at length.
Ram has always spoken eloquently about India, his director and RRR. He is truly a global star with his multiple USA appearances ranging from Good Morning America to ABC News. The actor will be making an appearance at the coveted Hollywood Critics Association on Friday. He will also be presenting an award there, making him the only Indian presenter on this global stage.
