One Oscar triumph shouldn’t be seen as the pinnacle, according to writer-director Vijayendra Prasad, who wrote the script for the SS Rajamouli-directed film RRR. This is because there are so many other categories for the Academy Awards. Naatu Naatu from RRR made history on Monday by becoming the first song from an Indian production to win an Oscar.

Naatu Naatu was sung live at the 2023 Oscars on March 12 (March 13 in India), and the performance received a standing ovation. A cheer went up every time actor Deepika Padukone stated Naatu Naatu or RRR as she introduced the performance.

Prasad discussed his reaction to RRR giving India its first-ever Oscar in an interview with Asianet Telugu. He responded, “This is not the pinnacle,” when asked if winning the Oscar was the ultimate recognition. The Academy Awards have a huge number of categories. Take a look at the movie Everything Everywhere All at Once, which received 11 nominations. Several categories it won in. As hard as they work, so must we. Other categories should be our (Indian cinema’s) focus as well.

“We’re blessed that RRR movie is the first feature film to bring INDIA’s first ever Oscar in the Best Song Category with Naatu Naatu,” said a tweet from the official RRR Twitter account following the historic victory at the Oscars. This bizarre situation is beyond words to convey. (emoticon of hands folded) I dedicate this to all of our incredible global followers. MANY THANKS! (emoticons with red hearts) JAI HIND! Composer MM Keeravani made the following statement in his acceptance speech after receiving the Oscar for Naatu Naatu: “There was only one wish on my mind…RRR has to win…the pride of every Indian…and it must place me on top of the globe.”

Naatu Naatu rose to prominence over the past several months on a global scale. The song got the crowds dancing in the aisles and cheering at all of its most recent screenings in the US and other nations. The fictional story RRR, which was released in theaters last March, is set in the 1920s, just before independence. When they unite to take on British officials, RRR follows two characters who are loosely inspired on the real-life Telugu revolutionary figures Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR) and Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan).
