Golden Globe Awards: Another honor for RRR; Naatu Naatu wins Best Original Song

Hyderabad: RRR's `Naatu Naatu' won Best Original Song at the Golden Globe awards. The honor came when the movie is completing 300 days in theaters. Starring Ram Charan and Jr NTR, the film has been ruling the box office across the globe.

The song beat some heavyweights performed by the likes of Rihanna and Lady Gaga. While the award was received by composer MM Keeravani on behalf of the team, a lot of other performers' sweat went into the making of the song.

'Naatu Naatu' was competing with `Carolina; from Where the Crawdads Sing, `Ciao Papa' from Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio, `Hold My Hand' from Top Gun: Maverick, `Lift Me Up from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Naatu Naatu has been composed by MM Keeravani with the original Telugu lyrics penned by Chandrabose. Tamil lyrics have been written by Madhan Karky, Hindi by Riya Mukherjee, Malayalam by Mankombu Gopalakrishnan, and Kannada by Azad Varadaraj.

The track has been sung by Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava for the original Telugu version, with other singers like KD Harisankar, Yazin Nizar, and Vishal Mishra lending their voices for the dubbed versions. The choreography of the song, which has taken the world by storm, has been taken care of by Prem Rakshith.

MM Keeravani, also known as MM Kreem, is a veteran composer who has worked in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada films for over three decades. He has won awards for work in films like Annamayya, Magadheera, and Baahubali, and has also composed for Bollywood films like Jism, Paheli, Sur, and Zakhm.

Lyricist Chandrabose has written over 3000 songs in Telugu films and has won several awards. Rakshith, on the other hand, is also a celebrated name in the Telugu film industry, having worked in films like Baahubali throughout his career.


Speaking to the media last year, Prem Rakshit revealed he worked for 30 days on 97 dance movements for the song and that the team used the ultra zoom to get the sync right between the actors. Originally, the plan was to shoot the song with 100 dancers. However, it was canceled because of the lead stars' dance moves.
