Jaya Bachchan reacted to North India vs South India debate after certain regional parties credited RRR's Oscars win to South.
SS Rajamouli's RRR charted history with Naatu Naatu's Oscars win. However, there has been quite a topic to label RRR, a Telugu film, South Indian movie, or Indian film. Recently, veteran actor and politician Jaya Bachchan responded to the big debate after certain leaders credited ‘south India' for the Oscar win of RRR song Naatu Naatu and the documentary The Elephant Whisperers, which is based in Tamil Nadu.
Jaya Bachchan reacted to North India vs South India debate after certain regional parties credited RRR's Oscars win to South. He said, "I am so happy and I am so glad that we are discussing the most important ambassadors of this country. And they are the film folks. It doesn't matter where they are from – north, east, south or west – they are Indians... I stand here with pride and with dignity for our film fraternity, who have represented this country number of times, have won a number of awards starting from Satyajit Ray onwards."
"I also want to contribute and say I know Mr SS Rajamouli very well… The writer (KV Vijayendra Prasad), he is not just the scriptwriter, he is also the story writer as well, he is a member of this House (Rajya Sabha). And it is a great honour. There have been many, many such people from the creative world, who have been nominated here in this House earlier and today as well," Jaya further said.
