The song ‘Natu Natu’ from SS Rajamouli’s magnus opus RRR has been a hit worldwide because of its catchy tune and amazing dance performance.
The actor duo Ram Charan and Jr. NTR danced their hearts out in the song.
M. M. Keeravaani composed the song and the lyrics of the song is penned by Chandrabose, the song is sung by Rahul Sipiligunj and Kaala Bhairava.
M. M. Keeravani was emotional while receiving the award and said, “Thank you very much HFPA (Hollywood Foreign Press Association) for this prestigious award, Golden Globe.
I am very much overwhelmed with this great moment happening and I am very much happy to share this excitement with my wife, who is sitting right there”
M. M. Keeravani continued, “It’s been an age old practice to say that this award belongs to someone else.
So I was planning to not say those when I get an award like this, but I am sorry to say I am going to repeat the tradition because I mean my words.
This award belongs to — in order of priority — my brother and the director of the film SS Rajamouli for his vision.
I thank him for his constant trust in my work and support.
Mr. Prem Rakshit, who animated the song — without him this award would not have been possible.
Kaala Bhairava, who gave wonderful arrangements for the song and Mr. Chandrabose for his wonderful words as lyricist.
Mr Rahul Sipiligunj with Kaala Bhairava, who rendered the song with high energy”
The actors of the movie, Jr. NTR and Ram Charan who got national and international praise for their dance in the song, also received mention in M. M. Keeravani’s speech.
He praised them for their full stamina for the song.
The songs beats Taylor Swift’s ‘Carolina’ from Where the Crawdads sing, ‘Ciao Papa’ from Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, Lady Gaga’s ‘Hold my Hand’ from Top Gun: Meverick and Rihanna’s ‘Lift me up’ from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
M. M Keeravani was in the the award show of the Golden Globe with his wife Srivalli, RRR director SS Rajamouli, actor duo of RRR, Jr. NTR and Ram Charan and some other members.
RRR was one of the highest grossing movie in the history of Indian cinema.
It earned more than 1200 crores worldwide. SS Rajamouli’s movie has got the thumbs up from masses as well as critics alike.
Prime Minister, Narendra Modi too praised M. M. Keeravani and the team RRR for this award in a tweet.
RRR’s next destination is the Oscars 2023 where it has applied in various categories and believed to have great chance to win there.
We would like to wish the best for SS Rajamouli and his entire team for the Academy Awards. Finger crossed and we all get to know about the verdict very soon.
