A first for the Oscars, Rajamouli’s “RRR” was nominated for Best Original Song. No other Indian film has ever been nominated for this award before. The film’s “Naatu Naatu” is now in the running for the prize. In a month, the Academy Awards will be presented.
However, before the ceremony, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles, USA, held a luncheon for all the nominees. Nominated for their work on “Naatu Naatu,” composer MM Keeravani and lyricist Chandrabose were also asked to attend.
When Chandrabose met Tom Cruise at the luncheon, he had a fanboy moment. He posted a selfie he took with Cruise to Twitter.
“With top gun TOM (sic),” he wrote with the photo. One of the biggest names in Hollywood, Top Cruise delivered a blockbuster “Top Gun: Maverick”.
