Hyderabad, Jan. 11 Playback singer Rahul Sipligunj is overjoyed that “Naatu Naatu,” the enormously famous “RRR” song he co-wrote with Kaala Bhairava, won the Golden Globe for best original song.
The 33-year-old musician claimed that he will start the celebrations by serving the renowned Hyderabadi biryani to everyone who visits his home.
“Naatu Naatu,” a song from the hit Telugu-language film “RRR,” was the unexpected and historic winner for best original song at the Golden Globes Tuesday, beating out Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
The movie won Golden Globes.
I feel joyful and emotional, and it causes me to reflect on my previous experience, he said to PTI.
The modest singer attributes the success of “Naatu Naatu” in the SS Rajamouli-directed period drama to the exuberant dance skills of the movie’s stars Ram Charan and Junior NTR.
I’m grateful to Ram Charan Sir, Junior NTR Sir, and Prem Rakshit Master (the choreographer). Another positive is the song’s “hook up” step. Which went viral both in India and internationally. The movie gained popularity and became a worldwide success. When visitors arrive at my home, I serve them Hyderabadi biryani. I want to kick off my celebration in that manner.”
