'Naatu Naatu' makes India proud, wins Best Original Song at Oscars

Los Angeles, Mar 13 (IANS): ‘Naatu Naatu' picturised on Ram Charan and NTR Jr from the film ‘RRR made India proud again as it won the Best Original Song at the 95th Academy Awards.

Leaving behind names such as Lady Gaga, Diane Warren and Rihanna, ‘Naatu Naatu' made history after contending against songs such as 'Applause' from 'Tell It Like a Woman', 'Hold My Hand' from 'Top Gun: Maverick', 'Lift Me Up' from 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' and 'This Is a Life' from 'Everything Everywhere All at Onc'e.

Music composer M.M. Keeravaani said on receiving the honour: "Thank you Academy. I grew up listening to the carpenter here I am at the Oscars. There was only one wish on my mind... So was Rajamouli's and my family... ‘RRR', pride of every Indian. Thank you."

'Naatu Naatu' has already won a Golden Globe and a Critics Choice Award this year.

'RRR' stars NTR Jr., Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt and Shriya Saran and tells the fictional story of two real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem and their fight against the British Raj.

Set in the 1920s, the plot explores the undocumented period in their lives when both the revolutionaries chose to go into obscurity before they began the fight for their country.

    This is one outstanding work of art.... This is where all parameters of a filmed song came to perfection... Be it the score, choreography or cinematography all were top class... That is how a song becomes world's best... A real proud moment for all Indians... Not to forget the poignant subtle documentary "elephant whisperers"... India do well and do more....
