RRR’s foot-tapping track, Natu Natu makes history as the first Indian movie song to win a Golden Globe award. The popular song clinched the Best Original Song award at the 80th Golden Globes, as announced earlier today. The movie also landed a nomination in the best Non-English film category.
The recent feat puts Indian movies on the global map, and delighted fans could not stop gushing over a rather heartwarming sight: Je NTR, Ram Charan, and S.S. Rajamouli were papped clapping with glee.
Charan also dropped exciting titbits to host Marc Malkin on how they went about shooting the song. “My knees still wobble talking about it. Ya, it was what it is, it is a beautiful torture and look where it got us! We are standing here, talking to you today on this carpet, thanks to it,” says the actor.
On the other hand, Jr NTR avers that Rajamouli ensured the synchronization in the song did not fall short of perfection. “We shot it on the last leg of the film. We were tortured for 65 nights. We were beating each other, me and Ram Charan — we were killing each other and then it started with apologizing — SS Rajamouli really wanted us to hate each other. Finally, by the 21st or 22nd night, we stopped apologizing and said let’s get it done. And that’s when he brings his bazooka, called Naatu Naatu. We’ve done complicated steps, but Naatu Naatu is not about the steps being complicated, it was the synchronization, which Rajamouli stressed on.”
RRR has reportedly raked in over Rs. 1200 Cr globally. The film has been filed for Oscar nomination, and fans are eagerly waiting for things to pan out just as well as how it has at the Golden Globes in 2023. Set in the 1920s, RRR sheds light on an era when British rulers were colonizing India. Jr NTR and Charan play feisty freedom fighters, and the movie also features Alia Bhatt, Ajay Devgn, and Olivia Morris in key roles.
