Oscars 2023: Ram Charan, Jr NTR's 'Naatu Naatu' from 'RRR' wins Best Original Song

Naatu Naatu from SS Rajamouli’s RRR has won the Oscar for Best Original Song at the 95th Academy Awards. Composed by MM Keeravani, with lyrics by Chandrabose and vocals by Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava, the song became a hit after its release in March 2022.
