In what is a historical moment for India and Telugu cinema in particular, MM Keeravani, edging out heavyweights like Rihanna and Taylor Swift, won the Best Original song- motion picture for his catchy and infectious Naatu Naatu from RRR at the 80th Golden Globe Awards held in Los Angeles on Tuesday night! In doing so, it became the first Asian song to win the coveted honour.

In his acceptance speech, Keeravani said, “Thank you very much HFPA for this prestigious award- Golden Globe. I am very much overwhelmed with this great moment happening. I’m very happy to share this excitement with my wife who is sitting right there.”

The veteran added, “It is an age-old practice to say that this award actually belongs to someone else, not me. I was planning to not say those words when I get an award like this, but I am sorry to say I am going to repeat the tradition because I mean my words.”

Thanking each person involved in the making of the song in the order of priority, Keeravani mentioned, “The award belongs to my brother and the director of the movie SS Rajamouli for his vision. I thank him for his constant trust in my work and support. And Mr Prem Rakshit who animated the Naatu Naatu song; without him, it wouldn’t have happened. And Kaala Bhairava who had given wonderful arrangements for the song. And Mr. Chandrabose for his wonderful words as lyricist. And Mr Rahul Sipligunj along with Kaala Bhairava who rendered the song with high energy. And NT Rama Rao and Ram Charan, who danced with full stamina for the song.” He also thanked Saluri Siddharth and Jeevan Babu who programmed for the song.

Keeravani concluded his speech by again thanking his wife, “Thank you Srivalli, thank you Valli.”
