‘Naatu Naatu’ From ‘Rrr’ Becomes First Song From an Indian Film to Land a Best Song Oscar Nomination
The song “Naatu Naatu” from the global crossover hit film “Rrr” apparently made Academy members want to put on their dancing shoes, as the tune became the first number from a fully homegrown Indian film to get nominated for a best original song Oscar Tuesday morning.

The infectiousness of the large-scale production number that hosts the song in the film had made “Naatu Naatu” a favorite to make the final five going into this week’s Academy Awards nominations, after it earlier made the music branch’s shortlist of 15 eligible numbers. It got a further boost in visibility when it won the best song award at the Golden Globes Jan. 10, with M.M. Keeravani — the composer of the film’s score, and co-writer of its many songs — coming over from India to accept the trophy.

If “Naatu Naatu” wins, it won’t be the first tune written by Indian songwriters to pick up an Oscar.
