SS Rajamouli, arguably one of the most famed filmmakers in the modern era, achieved the most prestigious laurel for Indian cinema. His magnum opus Ranam Roudram Rudhiram, globally known as RRR, reached a height no Indian film has ever been to by winning the coveted Oscar, aka Academy Award. The energetic dance number from RRR, Naatu Naatu, composed by MM Keeravani and penned by lyricist Chandrabose, won the Oscar award in the Best Original Song category at the lavish annual awards ceremony held in Los Angeles this morning.
Sung by Kaala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj, the Oscar-winning song also bagged the Golden Globe earlier this year under the same category. RRR is also a proud recipient of several other international accolades, including the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, Hollywood Critics Association Awards, Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, and many others. Singers Bhairava and Rahul put up an ecstatic performance of Naatu Naatu at the 95th Oscars, to which a group of dancers performed energetically in outfits similar to the film version. Giving his acceptance speech, music director MM Keeravani shared that taking RRR to the top has been his and his cousin SS Rajamouli’s dream.
Here is how Twitter reacted to RRR winning the Oscar award for Naatu Naatu under the Best Original Song category.
The popularity of ‘Naatu Naatu’ is global. It will be a song that will be remembered for years to come. Congratulations to @mmkeeravaani, @boselyricist and the entire team for this prestigious honour.
