Industrialist Anand Mahindra has also reacted to Deepika’s short introductory speech for Naatu Naatu, which according to him, is a “mini-epic movie.” He also gave a shout-out to RRR director SS Rajamouli, music composer MM Keeravaani and lyricist Chandrabose. 

Anand Mahindra wrote, “Energy, optimism, partnership, winning against odds. #NaatuNaatu is not just a song: it’s a mini-epic movie. No wonder it had people everywhere rising to their feet. Even at the #Oscars I bow low toSS Rajamouli, MM Keeravaani and Chandrabose.” 

MM Keeravani’s Naatu Naatu from the film RRR scripted history after winning the Oscar in the ‘Best Original Song’ category.

Calling Naatu Naatu a “total banger”, Deepika also explained the context of the song in the film, RRR. She said, “It plays during a pivotal scene in RRR, a movie about the friendship between real-life Indian revolutionaries Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. In addition to being sung in Telugu and illustrating the film’s anti-colonialist themes, it’s also a total banger.”

“It’s earned millions of views on YouTube and Tik Tok. Has audiences dancing in movie theatres all around the world and is also the first song ever from Indian production to be nominated for an Oscar,” the actress added. 

Introducing singers Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava ahead of their live performance, Deepika said, “Do you know Naatu? Because if you don’t you’re about to. From the film RRR this is Naatu Naatu.”  

The energetic performance also received a standing ovation.
