Naatu Naatu Song Still

The music song from Rajamouli’s RRR, 'Naatu Naatu' was performed live at the Oscars 2023 stage. The OG singers of the song, Kaala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj, along with the international dancers including Lauren Gottlieb, the former runner-up in Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa, spectacularly recreated and synced the onscreen dancing by stars Ram Charan and N. T. Rama Rao Jr. (Jr NTR)

There is no denying Naatu Naatu doesn’t fail to fill you up with joy and pride every time you play it. The same moment was created at the 95th Academy Awards, held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Naatu Naatu's Oscar performance received a standing ovation from the audience and with this, it is another history made by SS Rajamouli and his team. Naatu Naatu is a song that takes great pride in its roots in every way. 

Deepika Padukone, who attended the Oscars as a presenter took to the stage and introduced Naatu Naatu's musical performance. Oscars 2023 is hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel.

India has set foot, strongly and powerfully at the 95th Academy Awards. While Deepika attended as a presenter, SS Rajamouli's RRR made it big as Naatu Naatu is nominated for Best Original Song. Shaunak Sen's All that Breathes was nominated in the Best Documentary Feature category but lost. The Elephant Whisperers, by Kartiki Gonsalves in her directorial debut, has won Oscars in the Best Documentary Short category. India is undoubtedly having big Oscar moments. 

Note, Deepika Padukone is the third Indian star to attend the Oscars after Persis Khambatta and Priyanka Chopra.

In the other big news, RRR's Naatu Naatu has won Oscars 2023 in the Best Original Song category. Other nominees in the category were Applause (Tell It Like a Woman), Hold My Hand (Top Gun Maverick), Lift Me Up (Black Pather Wakanda Forever), and This is a Life (Everything Everywhere All at Once).
