Oscar winner Ajay Devgn says India should be proud of the recognition for his film “Naatu Naatu.”
Actor Ajay Devgn, who played a pivotal role in ‘RRR,’ said that it is a proud moment for the country as ‘Naatu Naatu’ made history at the 95th Academy Awards.
On Monday morning, Ajay, who played Ram Charan’s father in the film, posted the following message to Instagram: “Many people believe that movies can communicate with anyone, anywhere in the world. Both #RRR and #TheElephantWhispers deserve congratulations for their Oscar wins. Feeling (Indian flag emoji)proud right now.”
With the win for Best Original Song at the 95th Academy Awards for the song “Naatu Naatu,” which was featured in the film “RRR” and was picturized on Ram Charan and NTR Jr., India was once again able to boast about its achievements.
After competing against songs like “Applause” from “Tell It Like a Woman,” “Hold My Hand” from “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” and “This Is a Life” from “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once,” “Naatu Naatu” made history by beating out Lady Gaga, Diane Warren, and Rihanna.
This year, “Naatu Naatu” has taken home two trophies: the Golden Globe and the Critics’ Choice Award.
The film “RRR,” starring NTR Jr., Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, and Shriya Saran, is a fictionalised account of the lives of Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, two real-life Indian revolutionaries who fought against the British Raj.
The story takes place in the 1920s and focuses on the time before the revolutionaries publicly declared their support for their country.
