It’s a proud moment for India as Deepika Padukone has been announced as a presenter at the 2023 Oscars. On Thursday night, Deepika took to Instagram and shared a post with the names of all the presenters.

The list also includes Dwayne Johnson, Michael B Jordan, Riz Ahmed, Emily Blunt, Glenn Close, Troy Kotsur, Dwayne Johnson, Jennifer Connelly, Samuel L. Jackson, Melissa McCarthy, Zoe Saldana, Donnie Yen, Jonathan Majors and Questlove.

Sharing the post, the actress simply wrote, “#oscars#oscars95.”

In no time, netizens flooded Deepika’s comments section with congratulatory wishes. “Can’t wait to see you Deepu,” commented actor Neha Dhupia. “Boom,” commented Deepika’s sister, Anisha Padukone. Deepika’s husband, Ranveer, dropped cheering emojis in the comments section.

The 95th Academy Awards will take place March 12 (Mar 13 IST) at the Dolly Theater in Los Angeles. It’s a special year for India at the Oscars. This time around, not just one, but three significant Indian films are competing for the coveted 2023 Oscar nominations.

Shaunak Sen’s All That Breathes was nominated for Best Documentary Feature and Guneet Monga’s The Elephant Whisperers was nominated for Best Documentary Short.

RRR was nominated in the Best Original Song category for “Naatu Naatu,” which won the Golden Globe Award in the same category earlier this year. SS Rajamouli, MM Keeravani, Ram Charan will be present at the award ceremony. Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava will perform the Oscar-nominated song at the ceremony.

RRR had a massive Oscar campaign but ended up scoring just one spot. The film was snubbed by the FFI as India’s Oscar nominee, instead Pan Nalin’s Chhello Show was sent on behalf of India. However, the film did not reach the last five nominations.
