Rajamouli's ‘RRR’ makes India proud yet again!

It’s raining good news for all the RRR fans. After winning several international accolades, Rajamouli’s magnum opus has finally entered the Oscars race. The film’s song, “Naatu Naatu,” starring Jr NTR and Ram Charan, has been shortlisted in the 'Best Song' category. It is now among the 15 songs which have been selected out of 81 in total. “Naatu Naatu” (Kaala BhairavaMM KeeravaniRahul Sipligunj) will be competing with some of the biggest names in world music like Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, and Lady Gaga for Oscars Nominations from the 15 shortlisted songs.

Fans are going gaga over the announcement. The mass anthem, which has over 204 million views, is the first Indian original song to be shortlisted for the Oscars. Fans were disappointed when ‘RRR’ was not selected as India’s official entry for the Oscars aka the 95th Academy Awards. Nevertheless, the period-action drama was separately submitted through Variance Films' ‘For your consideration’ campaign for 14 categories.

Recently, “Naatu Naatu” was nominated for Golden Globe Awards under the ‘Best Original Song’ category. Besides this, the film has also bagged five nominations at Critics Choice Awards 2022.
