Naatu Naatu, from SS Rajamouli’s film RRR, has been composed by MM Keeravani and penned by Chandrabose. The hit track has been sung by Kaala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj. It earned recognition after Keeravani won a Golden Globe as well as a Critics Choice award for it. RRR also won the Critics Choice Award for best foreign language film.
Besides Naatu Naatu, India had two more shining moments at the Academy Awards nominations announcement on Tuesday night. Shaunak Sen’s critically-acclaimed All That Breathes made it to the final nominations list in the best documentary feature category, while Tamil documentary The Elephant Whisperers bagged a nomination in the documentary short subject section of the 95th Academy Awards.
