Famed writer and father of SS Rajamouli, Vijayendra Prasad, who penned the story for the blockbuster film RRR, recently shared his thoughts on the film's victory at the Oscars. The film's song, Naatu Naatu, won the Best Original Song category, beating out stiff competition from the likes of Rihanna and Lady Gaga. The victory has been hailed as a win for the entire Indian film industry, and Prasad expressed his joy at the historic moment.

Speaking about the win, Prasad said, "For long, I had wished for our movies to make waves in Hollywood. Despite having such rich content, we could never really find a foothold beyond Indian shores. That our film made it to the Oscars and won an award is a moment of triumph for the entire film fraternity of India. Our entire film fraternity can and should celebrate this moment of glory because we have, at last, been able to showcase the wealth of talent that we possess. It is such a vast market out there."

"Sometimes my son (Rajamouli) asks me in what aspects is India the richest in the world. I tell him that our country's richness lies in our storytelling. My son had a conversation with acclaimed filmmaker Steven Spielberg, who told him never to compromise on our culture of storytelling. We will be making a sequel to RRR," he added.

Set in the pre-independence era, the film follows the story of two freedom fighters, played by Ram Charan and Jr. NTR. The film also boasts of an ensemble cast that includes the powerful performance of Ajay Devgn, Shreya Saran, Alia Bhatt, and Olivia Morris. It's worth mentioning that a sequel for the film is in the works as the director confirmed in an interview.

The film's music, composed by M.M. Keeravani, has been lauded for its grandeur and epic feel. Naatu Naatu, in particular, has been praised for its upbeat chords and powerful lyrics. The song's win at the Oscars is a testament to the talent and hard work of the entire team behind the film.

The victory has been a proud moment for the Indian film industry, and it is sure to pave the way for more recognition on the global stage. With films like RRR setting the bar high, it is only a matter of time before more Indian films make their mark on the international stage.
