Talks about Rajamouli’s vision and credits NTR-Ram Charan’s dance for the global popularity of “Naatu Naatu”

RRR’s “Naatu Naatu” etched history today by bringing home the Globe for ‘Best Original Song’. Music composer MM Keeravani and lyricist Chandrabose are listed as the writers for the song. While the whole country is celebrating the historical win, lyricist Chandrabose sat down with television media to discuss the process of writing the song and how elated he is at the win and what it means to him.

Talking about how the song was conceptualised, Chandrabose revealed the brief SS Rajamouli had given him, “We have good talented dancers who will dance together… write a song that extracts their complete dancing skills.” Chandrabose delivered  “Naatu Naatu,” a song he wrote in a day. But that wasn’t it for the song, turns out MM Keeravani composed more than 35 versions of the song over a course of 19 months.

Chandrabose added, “The characters do not hail from a city, they come from small villages. Even I was born and brought up in a small village. So I wrote what I experienced in my life. The lines come directly from my life experiences.”

With teary eyes he further explained the reason for the simple but effective lyrics, “Every song I write is for my mother. Everything I write she should understand… she’s uneducated… so she should understand  the lyrics I write without help of another person or a dictionary.”

He concluded by thanking his family for their unwavering support and the team for making the song such a global success. The lyricist credited Jr NTR and Ram Charan’s powerful dancing for the global popularity the song enjoys today.
