At the Oscars 2023, Jimmy Kimmel made a goof up by calling SS Rajamouli’s RRR a Bollywood film.

And that is exactly what happened, the Twitter swarmed with fans expressing their rage over the host’s mix-up.
Kimmel calling RRR a Bollywood film in his opening monologue received a heavy backlash from the fans online. One of the users wrote, “#JimmyKimmel called RRR a Bollywood film in his opening monologue #Rajamouli’s skin must have crawled.” Another wrote, “Correction – RRR is a Indian film / Telugu / Tollywood made film and not a Bollywood film.” A third user wrote, “Hey @jimmykimmel RRR is a TOLLYOOD movie, NOT Bollywood!” Another user wrote, “He could have said indian movie… Don’t they do basic preparation?” Another netizen commented, “Jimmy Kimmel clearly has not seen RRR nor knows ANYTHING about the film.”
