However, she was there for one other purpose, to represent India, as she introduced “Naatu Naatu” before its live performance kickstarted. It's tradition for every song nominated in the “Best Original Song” category to be introduced by someone who is connected to the project before the artists come in perform. Deepika was picked to introduce the song, and she began with, "An irresistibly catchy chorus, electrifying beats and killer dance moves to match have made this song a global sensation. ”The line was instantly met with a round of applause, prompting her to pause multiple times over the course of her speech in order to be heard above the audience’s excited cheers. She continued once the audience quietened, “It plays during a pivotal scene in 'RRR', a movie about the friendship between real-life Indian revolutionaries Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. In addition to being sung in Telugu and illustrating the film's anti-colonialist themes, it's also a total banger! It's earned millions of views on Youtube and Tik Tok. Has audiences dancing in movie theatres all around the world and is also the first song ever from Indian production to be nominated for an Oscar. Do you know Naatu? Because if you don't, you're about to. From the film RRR this is Naatu Naatu.”Singers Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava took over from the ‘Project K’ actress and set the stage on fire with their energetic vocals. Lauren Gottlieb, accompanied by a troupe of international dancers, recreated the original choreography in the Dolby Theatre. The performance was met with a standing ovation from the audience, who echoed the song’s energy. The song took home the Oscar for “Best Original Song”, making history as the first song from an Indian production to win the honour.
