Manisha Koirala congratulates team ‘RRR’ and MM Keeravaani for their big win at Golden Globes for ‘Naatu Naatu’ song: ‘Well deserved win’ | Hindi Movie News
While congratulatory messages and wishes have been pouring in for the ace musician from all sides, ETimes approached Manisha Koirala for her reaction. The actress has worked with Keeravaani earlier in her film, ‘Criminal’. Showering praise on the entire team, Manisha said, “I am so so proud of them. It is a well deserved win!”
Keeravaani, who works across film industries in India, made his debut in 1990 with the Telugu film ‘Manasu Mamatha’. But he first tasted success with Ram Gopal Varma’s Telugu blockbuster film ‘Kshana Kshanam’ a year later.
However, it was Mahesh Bhatt who got Keeravaani to Bollywood. The first Hindi film which he scored for was ‘Criminal’. The love ballad ‘Tum Mile Dil Khile’ featuring Nagarjuna and Manisha Koirala became an instant classic.
‘RRR’ bagged two nods, for best picture non-English and best original song – motion picture. Creating history and bringing home the prestigious Golden Globe, ‘RRR’ bagged the Best Song – Motion Picture honour. With this win, ‘Naatu Naatu’ has emerged as the first Asian song to bag this award. ‘Naatu Naatu’ has been choreographed by Prem Rakshith, with MM Keeravaani being the music director and lyrics penned by Chandrabose.
‘RRR’ featured Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the role of Indian revolutionaries Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem. The fictional story was set in a set in pre-Independence times. The film also starred Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in pivotal roles and did record-breaking collections at the box office.
