Well, today the 95th Academy Awards is the only thing Indians are talking about right now. From Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone gracefully presenting the award to RRR creating history, Oscar’s night air was undoubtedly filled with heavy Indian presence. Moreover, we also got to see a performance on Naatu Naatu.
Indians woke up to brilliant news and started celebrating as the song won the Best Original Song Oscar award becoming the first Indian song to do so.
Ram Charan’s priceless reaction, Deepika Padukone crying in the audience, and Music composer MM Keeravani singing a song while accepting the award were definitely the best moments from the ceremony.
The Elephant Whisperers also made the country proud by taking home the Best Documentary award.
Netizens are flooding social media with congratulatory wishes for the Indian entries that won. Celebrities around the globe also reacted to the wins. Priyanka Chopra Jonas took to her Instagram to share a series of pictures from the Oscars’ live stream. She gave a shoutout to both teams and cheered for their win.
The celebrities did not only cheer for RRR and The Elephant Whisperers but they also mentioned how gracefully Deepika Padukone represented India on the world stage.
Karan Johar shared that he was ‘jumping on his bed’. Kangana Ranaut also took to Twitter to share wishes for both the Indian entries winning big at the Oscars stage. Check out all the reactions by Bollywood celebrities below.
Energy, optimism, partnership, winning against odds. #NaatuNaatu is not just a song: it’s a mini-epic movie. No wonder it had people everywhere rising to their feet. Even at the #Oscars I bow low to @ssrajamouli MM Keeravani & Chandrabose. 🙏🏽pic.twitter.com/6urWNclql5
