Jaya Bachchan is now receiving vicious trolls for it. With the song Naatu Naatu winning the Oscar for Best Original Song in 2023, SS Rajamouli and the RRR crew have given India great cause for celebration. The Elephant Whisperers, another magnificent winner for Best Documentary Short Subject, joined them. The triumph triggered a discussion in the parliament pitting the South against Bollywood, and Jaya Bachchan is now receiving vicious trolls for it.
It all started when numerous Lawmakers took advantage of the chance to thank the nation for the significant Oscars 2023 wins throughout the parliament. Mallikarjun Kharge, the president of the Congress, was seen complimenting both films while pointing out that they are both from South India. He appeared to have offended Jaya, who corrected him by referring to them as “Indian flicks.”
The Elephant Whisperers and this Naatu Naatu are receiving such an accolade for the first first time, according to Mallikarjun Kharge. and and………… We are quite proud of it. Earlier in his statement, MDMK leader Vaiko added, “I want to remind all of you what Tamil Nadu-born composer and director AR Rahman done for India.”
It doesn’t matter where they are from—North, East, South, or West—they are Indians, Jaya Bachchan reacted in her address. I’m standing here with pleasure and admiration for the members of our film community, who have won several honours and frequently represented this nation. The movie market is present. Not in America, that is. I want to congratulate the Indian population on the amazing work that Indian filmmakers are producing since this is just the beginning.
“Bollywood takes credit it doesn’t deserve,” another remarked. South India pushed the limits of film in terms of both technical and artistic accomplishment as well as in terms of subject. I’m fact, Bollywood always looked down upon South. Bollywood is attempting to steal credit in its moment of glory.
I’m not surprised that people from the south industry are emphasising “telugu cinema” instead of Indian cinema, another remarked. “Bollywoodias have looked down upon south cinema for a fairly long time, even when the latter made better original movies.
This topic is pointless, said a troll. The movie is in Telegu. Why should parliament even address such a non-issue. Jaya Bachchan is still as annoying as ever.
