Oscars 2023: RRR’s Naatu Naatu lands a historic win. Jr NTR, Alia Bhatt and others react


RRR’s Naatu Naatu won the Oscar for Best Original Song at the 95th Academy Awards. The historic win went to composer M.M. Keeravani and lyricist Chandrabose. This is the first song from an Indian production to win an Oscar and the second track by an Indian composer after Slumdog Millionaire’s Jai Ho, which was composed by AR Rahman.

Reacting to the win, an elated Jr NTR said, “I cannot find the words to express my elation right now. This is not just a win for RRR but for India as a country. I believe this is just the beginning. Showing us how far Indian cinema can go. Congratulations to Keeravaani garu and Chandrabose garu. Of course, none of this would have been possible without a master storyteller called SS Rajamouli and the audiences who showered us with all the love. I would also like to congratulate the team of ‘The Elephant Whisperers’ on their win today bringing another Oscar to India.”

In a statement, Ram Charan said, “Congratulations to everyone on the ‘RRR’ team including our director S.S. Rajamouli, the composer and lyricist of ‘Naatu Naatu’, M.M. Keeravaani and Chandrabose the vocalists who sang it, Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava, our choreographer Prem Rakshith, and the cast who brought this song to life, and to the world. ‘Naatu Naatu’ has become a global phenomenon and proof that a great story, as well a great song can transcend language and borders. This song is no longer our song. ‘Naatu Naatu’ belongs to the public and the people of every age and culture who have embraced it. I would also like to congratulate Kartiki Gonsalves and Guneet Monga for their big win for The Elephant Whisperers. It’s a great moment for India today!”

As congratulations poured in, several celebrities including Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn and Chiranjeevi reacted to the news.
