Is This Tamil Superstar Jealous On Telugu Cinema?

SS Rajamouli’s RRR made history by winning the Academy Award for Best Original Song with the track ‘Naatu Naatu’, and the entire country was ecstatic with the news. Top celebrities from all over the world, including Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Mahesh Babu, Prabhas, and many others congratulated the RRR team on their remarkable feat. However, Tamil superstar Vijay chose not to extend his wishes to the team on social media, despite his team’s attempts to increase his market in Telugu-speaking regions.

Many feel that Vijay could have congratulated the RRR team on their historic win with a single tweet, given that this was the first time an Oscar had been brought to India by a South Indian film. His failure to do so has left some speculating whether he is indifferent or envious of RRR’s global success, while others believe he has distanced himself from the Telugu audience. In contrast, had a similar milestone been achieved by the Tamil cinema industry, it is likely that the biggest stars from the Telugu film industry would have taken to social media to express their congratulations.
