Today is a big day for the Indian film industry. This is the first time in the history of Indian cinema that he received two Oscars at the same time. In the world’s biggest film industry, where hundreds of films are made every year, it’s important to get an award for any of them.
This happiness has come to India because of the song Natu-Natu from the film RRR and the documentary ‘The Elephant Whispers’. Three nominations were sent from India for the Oscars this year, two of which were considered a great success.
India has been winning Oscar awards even before Natu-Natu. But their number is so small that they can be counted on the fingers. That is why Natu-Natu and The Elephant Whispers are celebrated. The award that Natu-Natu has received is in the Best Original Song category. This increases its importance even more.

Natu-Natu has also received a Golden Globe Award before the Oscars. Having two international awards shows the popularity of the song.
The Oscar that India got before Naatu Naatu was for the song ‘Jai Ho’ from the film Slumdog Millionaire composed by AR Rahman. This is the first time any Indian film has won an Oscar. The song ‘Jai Ho’ from the film Slumdog Millionaire won two Oscars, one for Best Original Song and the other for Best Original Score for the same song.
Apart from AR Rahman for the song ‘Jai Ho’, Resul Pookutty has received awards for sound design and sound editing and Gulzar for lyrics.
Indian film industry got its first Oscar for Best Costume Design by Bhanu Athaiya. Bhanu Athaiya designed the costume for Ben Kingsley’s film Gandhi.
India may have received fewer awards, but films from here have been nominated for an Academy Award from time to time. Mother India was the first Indian film to be nominated for an Oscar. Released in 1957, the film starred veteran actors like Nargis, Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar and Rajkumar. Although the film failed to win the award, Mother India missed the award by just one vote in the election for the winner.
The film that won the Oscar in the foreign film category that year was the Italian film ‘Night of Cabiria’ directed by Federico Fellini.
From India, apart from Mother India, only Salaam Bombay and Lagaan have managed to make it to the Academy Awards so far.
Salaam Bombay, a film based on the lives of Mumbai’s slums by Mira Nair, was India’s official submission to the Oscars. Salaam Bombay made it to the top five foreign language films of that year.

Another film nominated for an Oscar after Salaam Bombay was Lagaan, a film starring Aamir Khan depicting the British era Lagaan system. So far no Indian film has managed to win an Oscar Award.
Satyajit Ray is the only Indian director to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Academy Awards.
After the success of Natu-Natu and ‘The Elephant Whispers’, it is expected that India’s participation in international awards will increase. Because this success is very small according to the size of the Indian film industry.
