Actors Ram Charan, Jr NTR, lyricist Chandrabose and music composer MM Keeravani have been invited to join the Academy. In addition to them, director Mani Ratnam and KK Senthil Kumar, who worked on SS Rajamouli’s RRR, are also among the members. They are the new invitee list for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Ram Charan and Jr NTR, who represented India at the Oscars, have been chosen as members of the acting branch. Sabu Cyril has also been invited as a member of the Academy under Production Design. While most of the members on this year’s Academy list include the RRR team, director S.S. Rajamouli has been omitted. Mani Ratnam was chosen from the directorial branch and the RRR director, who spent 2 months in Hollywood during promotions, was not on the list. The Oscar-winning Naatu Naatu song music composer MM Keeravani and lyricist Chandrabose are on the list.

The other big names from India are Karan Johar, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Chaitanya Tamhane, Haresh Hingoran and others. “The Academy is proud to welcome these artists and professionals to our membership,” said Academy CEO Bill Kramer and Academy President Janet Yang.
For the inexperienced, last year Suriya was the celebrity from the South who was invited to join the Academy’s membership list. Well, it is indeed a proud moment for Southern cinema, as most of the members on the Academy’s roster are Southern actors and technicians.
