Director S S Rajamouli's 'RRR' has bagged a trophy for best original song at Golden Globes Awards 2023.
The movie won Golden Globe for Best Original Song, for the track “Naatu Naatu'.
The blockbuster Indian movie is also nominated for the 'best picture-non English' at the ceremony.
“Naatu Naatu,” a dance number featuring stars Junior NTR and Ram Charan, was competing against Taylor Swift’s “Carolina” from Where the Crawdads Sing, “Ciao Papa” from Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, Lady Gaga’s “Hold My Hand” from Top Gun: Maverick, and “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, performed by Rihanna.
The popular song, composed by veteran music director MM Keeravaani and penned by Kala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj, was nominated in the 'original song–motion picture category'.
The lavishly mounted period epic is the first Indian film in over two decades to be nominated for the awards.
In the 'best picture–non English segment', “RRR” will face off with Korean romantic mystery film “Decision To Leave”, German anti-war drama “All Quiet on the Western Front”, Argentine historical drama “Argentina, 1985”, and French-Dutch coming-of-age drama “Close”.
