India Strikes Gold at the Oscars with Historic Double Win

India has once again made a historic marker at the 95th Oscars

India has once again made a historic marker at the 95th Oscars, clinching two wins and setting off celebrations across the country. The Oscar for Best Original Music went to the song “Natu Natu” from the film RRR, while “The Elephant Whisperers” won in the Best Documentary (Short Film) category. Keeravani and Chandra Bose, the creative minds behind the winning music, were thrilled to accept the awards together and dedicated their victory to India.

“The Elephant Whisperers,” produced by Guneet Monga, tells a heart-stealing tale of an orphaned baby elephant and its guardians, the Papan couple. The film’s director, Karthiki Gonsalves, was ecstatic to receive the award in a highly competitive category, triumphing over other Indian entries like “All That Breathes.” The ceremony saw the likes of Director S.S. Rajamouli, and actors Ramcharan, Jr. N.T.R. in attendance, with Deepika Padukone hosting the event.

India’s previous Oscar win in the music category was A.R. Rahman’s success for “Slumdog Millionaire,” but this year’s double win marks a bigger claim to the achievement. The song “Natu Natu” also won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, while Lauren Gottlieb’s performance at the Oscars made it all the more special.

India has a long-standing history with the Oscars, with celebrated names like Bhanu Athaiah, Gulzar, Rasul Pookkutty, and Satyajit Ray winning the prestigious award. These latest victories reinforce India’s position as a significant player in the global film industry.
