For the first time in the 95th Oscar ceremony, India has received two awards for the first time. The song Natu-Natu from the film RRR won Best Original Song and The Elephant Whispers became Best Documentary Short Film. However, India’s documentary feature film All That Breathes is out of the race. India got nominations in these three categories in the Oscar Awards.
Let us tell you that Natu-Natu had earlier received the title of Best Original Song at the Golden Globes Award. Chandrabose and composer MM Keerwani, who wrote the song Natu-Natu of RRR, took the Oscar trophy at the Oscar ceremony. During this, the director of the film, Rajamouli, remained seated behind. The Telugu meaning of RRR is Roudram Ranam Rudhiram and Rise Roar Revolt in Hindi.
The Elephant Whispers director Kartiki Gonsalves and producer Guneet Monga received the award for Best Short Documentary. During this, Deepika Padukone present in the ceremony became emotional. She had arrived as the presenter of the ceremony. According to Indian time, the Oscar ceremony started at 5:30 am on Monday morning in Los Angeles, USA.
On this occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted and congratulated the makers of RRR and The Elephant Whispers. He said – ‘Extraordinary! The popularity of ‘Naatu Naatu’ is global. This is one song that will be remembered for years to come. Congratulations to the entire team including MM Keerwani and Chandrabose for this honour. India is elated and proud’.
