Following the Oscar win, Ram released a statement in which he expressed his feelings post the event. “RRR is and will always remain as the most special film of our lives and of Indian cinema history. I can’t thank everyone for manifesting the Oscar award. It still feels like I’m living in a dream,” he wrote, and thanked everyone for the unstoppable support and love.
He further wrote: “SS Rajamouli garu and MM Keeravani garu are the most precious gems of our Indian film industry. Thank you both for giving me an opportunity to be a part of this masterpiece.”
He went on to describe Naatu Naatu as an emotion across the globe. Ram also thanked Alia Bhatt, who was paired opposite him in the movie, as the sweetest co-star.
As part of the Oscars award ceremony, Naatu Naatu was performed live on stage and the performance earned a standing ovation. Deepika Padukone introduced the performance as the audience cheered on every time she mentioned Naatu Naatu.
Over the last few months, Naatu Naatu truly became a global phenomenon. Released last March in cinemas, RRR is a fictional story set in the 1920s pre-independent era and is based on the lives of two real heroes and well-known revolutionaries.
