RRR‘s “Naatu Naatu” songwriter M. M. Keeravani celebrated his Oscar win for Very best Original song, nicely in song.
“I grew up listening to The Carpenters and now right here I am with the Oscars.” he stated ahead of breaking out with a variation on hitmaking duo’s 1973 smash “Top of the Globe.”
“There was only one particular want on my mind…RRR has to win, correct off of just about every Indian and will have to be place me on the major of the planet,” he sang to wonderful cheery applause with co-songwriter Chandrabose by his side.
“Naatu Naatu” is the very first song ever from an Indian film to win in the category. Nevertheless, the duo tonight are the second and third Indian songwriters to win in the category: Indian songwriter A.R. Rahman won the original song Oscar for “Jai Ho” from Slumdog Millionaire. Though that Danny Boyle directed pic was set in India, the production was deemed as a British one particular.
“Naatu Naatu” beat out some heavyweights such as the David Byrne/Son Lux/Mitski’s ditty “This is a Life” from Every little thing Everywhere All at As soon as, Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the Lady Gaga and BloodPop song “Hold My Hand” from Prime Gun: Maverick, the 14th Oscar nomination of songwriter Diane Warren, “Applause” from Inform It Like a Lady.
RRR from filmmaker SS. Rajamouli has grossed $160M WW becoming the third highest grossing Indian film and second highest grossing Telugu film worldwide.
