Naatu Naatu Hindi version singer Vishal Mishra: This is a win for all of us Indians

Published: 11th January 2023

Naatu Naatu from SS Rajamouli’s RRR won the Golden Globe Award for the Best Song (Original) on Wednesday. Composed by MM Keeravani, the song’s Telugu version is sung by Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairavaa, while the Hindi version ‘Naacho Naacho’ was crooned by Vishal Mishra and Rahul.

Talking about the win, Vishal said, “This is a win for not just me but to all of us Indians. It’s so great that not a rock or a pop song but an Indian composition has won the Golden Globe.”

When asked about how he was approached for the song, he said, “I sang Sholay (Etthara Jenda in Telugu) for the film and before I left after the recording, MM Keeravani sir said that he has another song for me and that’s how Naacho Naacho happened.”

Praising Rajamouli for his musical acumen, Vishal said, “Both Rajamouli sir and Keeravani sir were super involved in the Hindi version of ‘Naatu Naatu’. The clarity and the vision Rajamouli sir has is exemplary. He could even sing the notes to explain how he wanted the song to be.”

“This is a big day for not just the Telugu film industry, but for all of us,” he added.

Vishal rose to fame with the song ‘Kaise Hua’ from Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Kabir Singh, which was a remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy. The singer actually made his debut as a composer in 2016 with the Tamil film Devi. In 2017, he composed the song ‘Jaane De’, by Atif Aslam, which featured on the soundtrack of the film Qarib Qarib Singlle.
