The 95th Academy Awards ceremony was held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, USA. India's RRR's Country Song was nominated in the Best Original Song category, and The Elephant Whisperers won the award in the Best Documentary category.
In this situation, the best actress award went to 60-year-old Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh. This award was received for the movie 'Everything Everywhere Are At Once'. Notably, this film won 7 awards in various categories.
Michelle Yeoh has a connection to India. Buddhist leader Gyalwang Drukpa, spiritual head of the India-based Drukpa order with more than 1,000 monasteries across the Himalayas, is in the 'background' of her life.
A Buddhist believer, she continues to contribute to building quality roads along with the United Nations Development Organization. It is significant to be responsible as its goodwill ambassador. She has been fighting for HIV patients for many years.
In 2015, Michelle raised charity from Hollywood for Nepal earthquake victims on the advice of Gyalwang Drukpa for his 'Live to Love' foundation.
