Tourists in India meet 'Oscar-winning' elephants

STORY: Baby elephant Raghu plays a leading role in the 2022 documentary, which tells the story of an Indian couple who adopt an elephant and care for him.

“We have seen Raghu, the Oscar-winning elephant and Bommi, the other elephant which is also an amazing one,” said Suhas, a tourist from Bangalore.

"We came to visit the elephants and then we found out that two of them, Bommi and Raghu, won the Oscar last night so it's very fortunate that we were able to see them here," said tourist Grace.

Indians had won Oscars previously, but no Indian film had won an Academy Award before Sunday night in Los Angeles.
