In short- Users are claiming that Jai Bheem is the first Indian movie that got featured by Oscar in their official YouTube handle.
Indeed Jai bheem is a great movie but India has also produced significant movies in the past, so we cross-checked the claim and then we got a flashing headline coming in of Satyajit Ray’s ‘Two’ which got released in 1964. Esso world Theatre asked the very Talented and famous Bengali director to create a short film. Thus the movie was based on the encounter between a boy coming from a slum area and a rich boy who lives in Bungalow. The movie created an impact as the concept of the movie was new and unseen. ‘Two’ was featured on Oscar, YouTube channel on May 3, 2016. Logically Two was featured earlier than Jai Bheem, Therefore, Jai Bheem is not the first Indian movie that got a place at Oscar’s YouTube handle.
Conclusion – The claim is misleading and fake.
