The Telugu movie RRR finally won the Oscar for Best Original Song on Monday after becoming a global phenomenon with viewers. The song Naatu Naatu, penned by Chandrabose and arranged by MM Keeravaani, which had been the front-runner during the awards season, also won the highest honor. In Los Angeles, the RRR team celebrated their victory, and the blockbuster movie’s director SS Rajamouli was questioned about the planned sequel. Rajamouli acknowledged that the Oscar victory would expedite the sequel’s writing by his father, screenwriter Vijayendra Prasad.

The director went to the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party with his cousin Keeravaani. Variety, a trade publication for Hollywood, asked him if he would start writing the script more quickly now that RRR had won the Oscar. Rajamouli chuckled and remarked: “Certainly, [the Oscar win] will cause the plot to pick up speed. Without a doubt, let’s see.” Speaking about the sequel’s development was a “tricky question,” Keeravaani, who was sitting next to the director, had injected.

The director had previously stated that he had no intention of creating a historical drama sequel. In addition, he believed there hadn’t been any worthwhile ideas to pursue. He started to change his mind, though, as the movie became a worldwide hit.

In an interview with Variety, Rajamouli stated, “After the film’s success abroad, when the subject came up again, my cousin [MM Keeravaani]—who is also a member of my core team—gave a concept that we thought was absolutely brilliant. This is the direction that needs to be taken. He commanded his father to get to work right away and develop the concept.

He had added, “Right now, he’s working on the story seriously; he’s finishing it. But, when this script is finished, when we really look into how to make it, when to make it, and how to bring it onto the screen.”

Ram Charan and Jr. NTR, two RRR actors, attended the Vanity Fair event as well. Ram and his wife Upasana Konidela attended the ceremony, while Jr. NTR walked the red carpet wearing a Gaurav Gupta ensemble. Thereafter, Rajamouli’s LA house hosted a private celebration for the RRR crew.
