    Oscars 23 India Nominees: Naatu Naatu For Original Song

    The 95th Academy Awards, colloquially known as the Oscars, were broadcast live from Beverly Hills, California. Although the actual ceremony will be held in March, the announcement of the nominations is also among the most highly anticipated event. Actors Riz Ahmed and Allison Williams have unveiled the nominations from Los Angeles. As people waited for the highly coveted awards to unfold, it was a big day for India as three films were shortlisted as their official entries in categories namely Chhello Show for Best International Feature Film, All That Breathes for Best Documentary Feature, and The Elephant Whisperers for Best Documentary Short.

    NAATU NAATU FOR BEST ORIGINAL SONG

    It is a proud moment for India, as three of their Oscar submissions have received nominations, while The Chhello Show/ The Last Film Show has missed the spot. And with no surprises, Naatu Naatu from RRR has gotten a nod in the category of "Best Original Song," while "The Elephant Whisperers" has been nominated in the "Documentary Short Film" category.

    With RRR's Naatu Nattu receiving an Oscar nomination in the Best Original Song category, the film will now join a select group of Indian films that have previously been nominated for Oscars, including Mother India, Salaam Bombay, and Lagaan.

    The real excitement was for the global juggernaut RRR, which has also won the Golden Globes. Naatu Naatu has been composed by MM Keeravani, and has been sung by Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava. The lyrics of the song were penned by Chandrabose, while Prem Rakshith choreographed the popular number. It has been picturised on actors Ram Charan and Jr NTR.
