The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) on Thursday welcomed Telugu cinema star Ram Charan to its actor's branch.
The announcement comes weeks after Charan's RRR co-star Jr NTR was also inducted in the same group by the Academy, a Los Angeles-based organisation which holds the annual Oscars awards ceremony.
Sharing the list on their official social media pages, the Academy announced that Lashana Lynch, Vicky Krieps, Louis Koo Tin-Lok, Keke Palmer, Chang Chen, Sakura Ando and Robert Davi are also part of the latest actors line-up.
A video clip of Ram Charan from RRR was shared along with the caption, "Through their nuanced portrayal and dedication to authenticity, these actors gift us with characters that leave a lasting impression on our hearts and minds. Their mastery of their art form transforms ordinary moments into extraordinary cinematic experiences, enriching our appreciation for the depth and complexity of human emotions."
On the work front, he has Shankar's Game Changer in his upcoming line-up of films. After the film, Ram will begin shooting for his upcoming untitled film with director Buchi Babu Sana. He was last seen in Acharya, directed by Koratala Siva which was released last year.
