In a recent interview with the Times of India, director Mahesh Bhatt praised music composer MM Keeravani who won the Golden Globe for 'Naatu Naatu' from SS Rajamouli’s blockbuster RRR (2022) and also reacted to the global honor the film received.
"We may have different religions, different languages, and different coloured skin. Still, we, in the world of movies, worship the cinema God, which brings all of us together under one roof. 'Naatu Naatu' is that miracle glue which will be bringing the world together when it's performed at the 95th Oscars," Bhatt said
Talking about Keeravani, he said, "Simplicity is what defines Keeravani ji. The man who made India proud spoke straight from his heart and his simplicity was so disarmed. It was so heartening to see a person walk up there and share the moment of glory with the entire team. This is a rare attribute."
'Naatu Naatu' from Rajamouli’s RRR will be performed live at the Oscar’s ceremony on March 12. The song is also nominated in the Music (Original Song) category. Singers Rahul Sipliganj and Kaala Bhairava will be performing the song at the Oscar's night.
Directed by Rajamouli, RRR starred N T Rama Rao Jr, Ram Charan Teja, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt and Shriya Saran in pivotal roles.
