MM Keeravaani: RRR means the world to me

RRR's Naatu Naatu song composed by MM Keeravaani bagged the Oscar Award under the Best Original Score category. Following the big win, the music composer took to his social media handle to thank his fans and well-wishers for their warm wishes. 

He wrote, "Dearest JANANEE. Your support made us cross the Atlantic WATERs, keep the FIRE alive within - and create hiSTORY. RRR means the world to me. But for now, it means return home, receive your love and rejoice." (sic) Extending his gratitude, he also noted that "it has been an overwhelming experience with the Oscar". 

It may be noted that Naatu Naatu is penned by Chandrabose. It is sung by Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava. Meanwhile, singers Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava performed the number live at the ceremony.

Accepting the Award, Keeravaani said, "Thank You Academy. I grew up listening to The Carpenters. And now here I am with the Oscars." He further sang Top of the World with tweaked lyrics to express his gratitude, "There was only one vision in my mind...So was Rajamouli’s and my family’s... RRR has to win pride of every Indian. And must put me on top of the world. Thank you Karthikeya and various friends for making this possible. Love you all." Lyricist Chandrabose also received the Award with Keeravaani. 

Directed by SS Rajamouli, the epic action-drama features Jr NTR and Ram Charan in the lead roles.  The film's ensemble star cast includes Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, Samuthirakani, Ray Stevenson, Alison Doody, and Olivia Morris.  RRR is a fictional story that revolves around two real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju (Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR), and their fight against the British Raj.
