New Delhi: At the Golden Globes, RRR came, saw, and triumphed. One of the two categories in which SS Rajamouli’s hit movie Naatu Naatu was nominated was for Best Original Song. It didn’t win the 1985 award for Best Foreign Language Film, which went to Argentina. All Quiet on the Western Front (Germany), Close (Belgium), Decision to Leave, and others are also nominated in this category (South Korea).
The cast of RRR, including director SS Rajamouli, Jr. NTR, and Ram Charan (who is joined at the Golden Globes by wife Upasana Kamineni), will be in attendance. In the historical drama, which is set in the 1920s British-occupied India, Jr. NTR and Ram Charan portray liberation warriors Komaram Bheem and Alluri Seetharamaraju. Along with Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn, the cast also features Ray Stevenson, Alison Doody, and Olivia Morris from the United Kingdom.
Jerrod Carmichael, a comedian, is hosting the Golden Globes in Los Angeles. Following internal changes in response to criticism of its purportedly racial and sexist voting processes, the awards have returned to the mainstream of Hollywood. NBC, which broadcasts the Golden Globes, along with many of Hollywood’s biggest actors, led by Tom Cruise, who returned his three Globes, boycotted the event last year.
