RRR has performed far beyond expectations in the international circuit. The film grossed ₹1,200 Cr worldwide, setting several box office records for an Indian film, including the third-highest-grossing Indian film and second-highest-grossing Telugu film worldwide.
The film is a fictitious story about two legendary revolutionaries and their journey away from home before they started fighting for their country in the 1920s. The Telugu-language period action drama film is produced by D. V. V. Danayya of DVV Entertainment. 'RRR' released on 25th March 2022.

The 14 categories under which the film is being considered include Best Director for SS Rajamouli, Best Actor Jr NTR and Ram Charan, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress for Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt among others.
