‘Naatu Naatu’ composer MM Keeravani reacts minutes after winning an Oscar for Best Original Song
This is the first song of India origin to be thus honoured.
Reacting minutes after the historic announcement, composer Keeravani said, “I told you I was confident we’d do it. But I’ve to admit even then, that the actual announcement is a different feeling altogether. I can’t explain it. I want to say, this Oscar belongs to all of us in the RRR team: Rajamouli, Ram Charan, NTR Jr, lyricist Chandrabose, singers Rahul Sipligunj, Kaala Bhairava. Most importantly, we’ve made our country proud. No words to express my gratitude.”
