Sami’s tweet sparked a debate on social media. While some people supported him, others said that the victory of RRR is a matter of great pride for Andhra Pradesh. Let us tell you that while SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ bagged the best original song-motion picture for ‘Naatu Naatu’ track, composed by MM Keeravani and penned by Kala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj at the 80th Golden Globe Awards. It competed with Taylor Swift’s “Carolina” (“Where The Crawdads Sing”), “Ciao Papa” (“Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio”), “Hold My Hand” from “Top Gun: Maverick”, a collaboration between Lady Gaga, BloodPop and Benjamin Rice, and “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” by Tems, Rihanna, Ryan Coogler, and Ludwig Goransson.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also congratulated the SS Rajamouli-led ‘RRR’ team after it won the Best Song Award at the 80th Golden Globes. PM Modi tweeted, “A very special accomplishment! Compliments to @mmkeeravaani, Prem Rakshith, Kaala Bhairava, Chandrabose, @Rahulsipligunj. I also congratulate @ssrajamouli, @tarak9999, @AlwaysRamCharan and the entire team of @RRRMovie.
