Twitter reacts as Jimmy Kimmel calls 'RRR' a 'Bollywood movie' at Oscars

SS Rajamouli's 'RRR' was described as a 'Bollywood movie' by host Jimmy Kimmel at the Oscars. Fans reacted on Twitter.

Jimmy Kimmel, who hosted the 95th Academy Awards, made a goof up as he referred to SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ as a 'Bollywood movie'. As he announced the first award category, he was driven away by dancers set to perform the film’s song ‘Naatu Naatu’ on stage. Fans have slammed the host for his speech and have expressed their disappointment on social media.

Jimmy said, ‘This year we are not gonna play you off stage instead we have a group of performers from the movie RRR who are going to dance you offstage.’ He later called the SS Rajamouli directorial a 'Bollywood movie'.

After the incident, fans started reacting to his slip-up. A Twitter user wrote, ‘Why are they stating as a Bollywood Film when #RRR is actually a Tollywood film? There is a lack of representation in the Western world, unfortunately. Shame on #TheAcademy!’

‘Hollywood just called RRR a Bollywood movie lol,’ said another person. ‘RRR isn't Bollywood," a user commented.

‘RRR’s ‘Naatu Naatu’ bagged the Oscar in the Best Original Song category. The team was represented by composer MM Keeravani and lyricist Chandrabose on stage as they accepted the honor.

Singers Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava also performed the foot-tapping number at Oscars and they received a standing ovation for their performance. Actor-dancer Lauren Gottlieb was also seen grooving with them. Ahead of the performance, Deepika Padukone introduced the song to the audience and referred to it as a 'banger'.
