Lucknow Super Giants' RRR Tribute With KL Rahul Twist Baffles Fans
IPL franchise Lucknow Super Giants congratulated the RRR team for their success at Oscars 2023. But, there was a KL Rahul twist that baffled fans.
The RRR fever has gripped the entire Indian cricketing spectrum, with Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) also taking to social media to congratulate the entire RRR team for their success at the Oscars 2023, with the number Naatu Naatu winning the 'Best Original Song' award. The tweet saw LSG sharing a total of 4 pictures with the tweet, three of featured the members of the movie. However, one of the pictures was of the franchise's skipper KL Rahul. As soon as the post was shared on Twitter, baffled fans started to comment, asking why Rahul was part of the tweet.
Though KL Rahul doesn't have a direct connection with the movie, it seems like a cheeky attempt from LSG to draw a correlation between the movie RRR and 'Rahul'. Here's the tweet:

S.S. Rajamouli's films are all-singing, all-dancing spectacles -- and he is now a favourite to secure the first-ever Oscar for an all-Indian film.
His three-hour extravaganza "RRR" is a fictionalised story of two colonial-era revolutionaries, filled with large-scale, visual effects-laden action sequences and musical numbers.
It has smashed box offices in India, wowed audiences from the United States to Japan, and is a front runner for the Best Original Song award at next month's Oscars, having already beaten out Taylor Swift and Rihanna for the same prize at the Golden Globes.
"When I'm going to a movie, I would like to see larger-than-life characters, larger-than-life situations, larger-than-life drama," Rajamouli told AFP.
"And that's what I like to make," he said at his office in the southern city of Hyderabad.
"Nothing holds the heroes back in delivering their action sequences."
A word-of-mouth hit that has seen moviegoers dancing in cinema aisles, Telugu-language "RRR" has become one of the highest-grossing Indian movies ever.
