Naatu Naatu ruling the rooster globally
The song Naatu Naatu from SS Rajamouli-directed RRR has entered the Oscars race in the Best Original Song category. Naatu Naatu has become an international phenomenon.

Ram Charan Teja’s statement
Asked about his exact reaction if Naatu Naatu bags an Oscar, Ram Charan said: “I don’t think I’ll believe it. They have to wake me up and say, go and take it. Shove me up on stage. I’ll be the happiest. I don’t think it’ll be our success, it’ll be the success of the Indian film industry. None of us can take the credit.”
Talking about representing the entire country on a global level, he said: “It’s a great space we are all in right now. I feel like it’s a responsibility more than an achievement. I just don’t want it to be a one-time wonder. It’s a consistent process where we strive to do and come back again and again to the Oscars or Golden Globes.”
Released last March in cinemas, RRR is a fictional story set in the 1920s pre-independence era and is based on the lives of two real heroes and well-known revolutionaries – Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. While Ram Charan played Ram, Tarak was seen as Bheem.
The film grossed over Rs. 1000 crore during its theatrical run. In the US, the film is all set for a major re-release on March 3, ahead of the Oscars 2023.
