Ram Charan posted a message on social media praising the RRR crew and declaring, "What a historic moment for the entire Indian Film Industry..." We are overjoyed to see #NaatuNaatu become the first Indian song to be nominated for an Oscar. It's all thanks to the vision and magic of @ssrajamouli Garu and @mmkeeravaani Garu..#RRRForOscars."
