It was a very exciting night for Team RRR at the Golden Globes 2023. The huge hit and critically acclaimed film was awarded the prestigious Best Original Song for ‘Naatu Naatu’. The song, created by composer-songwriter M.M. Keeravani, featured the movie’s popular Telugu stars, Jr NTR and Ram Charan. The period action drama directed by S.S. Rajamouli is set in British-occupied India in the 1920s.
While accepting the award on stage, composer MM Keeravani said, “Thank you very much HFPA for this prestigious award. I am very much overwhelmed by this great moment. I am excited to share this with my wife, who is sitting right there. It’s been an age-old practice to say that this award actually belongs to someone else. I was planning not to say those words when I got an award like this. But sorry to say, I am going to repeat the tradition because I mean my words. This award belongs to – in order of priority my brother and director of the movie SS Rajamouli, for his vision. I thank him for his constant trust in my work and support.”
Ram Charan sharing a post-win picture, proudly wrote, “& WE WON THE GOLDEN GLOBES.” Similarly, sharing a picture of MM Keeravani accepting the award, Jr NTR penned on Instagram, “Congratulations Sirji on your well-deserved #GoldenGlobes award! I’ve danced to many songs throughout my career but #NaatuNaatu will forever stay close to my heart…”
