‘Naatu Naatu’ from ‘RRR’ shortlisted for Oscars in ‘Best Original Song’ category, Gujarati film ‘Chhello Show’ shortlisted too

‘RRR’ filmmakers are rejoicing as they progress further in the race to the Oscars. 

The infectiously catchy song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the blockbuster Telugu film has been shortlisted for the 2023 Oscar Awards in the ‘Best Original Song’ category. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to make the announcement. 

“What a way to start the day… #NaatuNaatu [from #RRR] – the most celebrated dance number of 2022 – shortlisted for #Oscars2023 in ‘Original Song’ category. #RRRMovie” he wrote. 

Adarsh also announced that the Gujarati film ‘Chhello Show’ was shortlisted in the ‘Best International Feature Film’ category. 

“A memorable moment, indeed… #LastFilmShow [#ChhelloShow] shortlisted in ‘International Feature Film’ category at #Oscars2023… OFFICIAL POSTER…” he wrote. 

Earlier, ‘RRR’ secured two spots in the nomination list for the Golden Globe Awards 2023. 

‘RRR’ was nominated in two categories, ‘Best Picture – Non-English Language’ and ‘Original Song – Motion Picture’. 

In the first category, it competes against the films ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’, ‘Argentina, 1985’, ‘Close’ and ‘Decision to Leave’. 

In the second category, the song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the Ram Charan-starrer will compete with ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ from ‘Carolina’, ‘Lift Me Up’ from ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’, ‘Hold My Hand’ from ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ and ‘Ciao Papa’ from ‘Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio’. 

The filmmakers had submitted the film to The Academy For the Oscars in main categories. They asked for consideration in categories, including Best Picture (DVV Danayya), Best Director (SS Rajamouli), Best Actor (Jr NTR and Ram Charan), Best Supporting Actor (Ajay Devgn), Best Supporting Actress (Alia Bhatt) and more. 

“#RRRForOscars.

The film collected over Rs 1200 crore worldwide.
