While presenting Naatu Naatu’s performance earlier in the night, Deepika said, “An irresistibly catchy chorus, electrifying beats and killer dance moves to match have made this next song a global sensation. It plays during a pivotal scene in RRR, a movie about the friendship between real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. In addition to being sung in Telugu and illustrating the film’s anti-colonialist themes, it’s also a total banger. It’s got millions of views on YouTube and Tiktok, has audiences dancing in movie theatres all around the world, and is also the first song ever from an Indian production to be nominated for an Oscar.”
“Do you know Naatu? Because if not, you are about to. From the film RRR, this is Naatu Naatu,” she added, giving the stage to singers Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava. It became the first ever Telugu song to be performed at the Oscars. The performance ended in a standing ovation from the audience.
Naatu Naatu has made history to become the first ever Telugu song to not only be performed and nominated but also won at the Oscars. The song, composed by M. M. Keeravani, competed with Applause from Tell it Like a Woman, Hold My Hand from Top Gun Maverick, Lift Me Up from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and This Is a Life from Everything Everywhere All at Once in the Best Original Song category.
