While all the people are waiting with a lot of excitement to see RRR in Oscars, The Film Federation of India (FFI) shocked everyone by picking the Gujarati film Chhello Show (Last Film Show) as its official entry for the 95th Academy Awards.

Now, RRR cannot compete in the Best International Picture category. But there is a good news for RRR fans. Reportedly, RRR US distributor decided to launch a full Academy campaign for the film.
