Many supporters are hoping that RRR’s song Naatu Naatu will win Best Original Song at the Oscars event on March 12. Recently, director SS Rajamouli went back and broke down the process of creating the song to explain how hard the crew worked to make the wildly popular song. The Telugu movie song was penned by Chandrabose and composed by MM Keeravani. The dance number’s singers, Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava, will perform the song at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday.

In Kiev, Ukraine, at the Presidential Palace, Naatu Naatu was filmed. Although Rajamouli had intended to film the song in India, his plans ultimately fell through. His team traveled to Kiev after locating the ideal venue for the song. The director revealed that in order to make the song look even more authentic and embrace the setting, he was quite particular about including real dancers and musicians in the backdrop.

Prem Rakshith, who has previously collaborated with Rajamouli, lead actors Ram Charan, and Jr. NTR, choreographed the now-viral dance moves. Rajamouli spoke with Vanity Fair about the making of the well-known song starring Ram and NTR. For each of them, [Prem] gave one of the most unforgettable numbers, he claimed. He is fully aware of their fashion sense and body language. He is fully aware of what their supporters want from them. He must develop a style that will work for both of the performers, who are required to dance together despite each having their own distinct dance technique. I wanted him to dance in a simple style because I also wanted him to be able to figure it out.

Prem and Rama Rajamouli, Rajamouli’s wife and a costume designer, took sure to incorporate the actors’ clothing into the dance moves as well. The costume staff had to save two or three clothes for the dancers because they would need to meticulously clean them after dancing on a dirty floor. Prem also came up with the brilliant plan to involve Ram and NTR in the creative usage of the suspenders. While this was a humorous dance number, the director had informed Prem that it also doubled as a battle scene for the purposes of the movie’s plot.

The director continued, “For me, Naatu Naatu is one of the reasons I think it is such a hit because it is not just the music or the dancing, but because there is a wonderful story in itself. Inside those 10 minutes, which include the lead sequence from Naatu Naatu and the entire song, is the entire plot of RRR. Nobody in America or the rest of the world truly understands the song’s lyrics, yet the lyrics are catchy and flow well. I believe Chandrabose, the lyricist, deserves praise.

Rajamouli continued by saying that in addition to being “exceptionally skilled dancers,” the principal actors also successfully conveyed the song’s nuanced emotions to the viewers in the manner that he had envisioned. Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, Samuthirakani, Ray Stevenson, Alison Doody, and Olivia Morris all appear in the March 25, 2022, global release of RRR.
