RRR is one of the most successful movies of 2022. RRR, directed by SS Rajamouli, is making history by winning multiple awards at prestigious events such as the Golden Globes 2023. Now, as per reports in Zee News India, ahead of the 95th Academy Awards nominations that will be announced on January 24, a prominent American magazine has named actor Jr NTR as one of the frontrunners in the Best Actor category.
Jr NTR plays a freedom fighter, Komaram Bheem, in SS Rajamouli’s film, which has been creating waves among the western audience. The magazine has predicted that Jr NTR’s performance in the film must have been noticed by the Academy and it might possibly land him a nomination in the Best Actor category.
“Here are 10 performances from deserving folks we hope are remembered in this year’s Oscar race,” mentioned the article, as it went on to rank Jr NTR at the top of the list that also includes names of actors like Tom Cruise, Paul Dano, Mia Goth, Paul Mescal and Zoe Kravitz. Mentioning Jr NTR’s performance in RRR, writer Brian Truitt wrote, “Academy, is it possible to go halfsies on a best actor nod? Because this action-packed musical adventure’s two Indian mega-stars are what makes “RRR” such an audience-friendly powerhouse: Ram Charan’s British army soldier and Rao’s loyal warrior become friends, butt heads as foes and then come back together as a fighting force, with an all-time bromance and an amazing dance-off along the way. If we have to pick, though, the charismatic Rao has the edge for leading an army of wild animals and juggling a motorcycle with ease.”
