History has been scripted at the 95th Academy Awards as “Naatu Naatu”, the song from SS Rajamouli directed “RRR” has won the Oscars in the Best Original Song but there is one more reason to be happy for the Indians. Kartiki Gonsalves directed “The Elephant Whisperers” has won the Oscar in the Best Documentary Short category and what makes it more special is the fact that it was the directorial debut of Kartiki.
“RRR” which starred Ram Charan and Jr. NTR in the lead roles was a very big hit in India and in overseas as well, it was getting a lot of love from audiences. Earlier, “Naatu Naatu” won the Golden Globe award in the best original song category and now it has once again made the country proud by winning the Oscars. The Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone who introduced the song on the stage also got emotional when “RRR” won the Oscars.
The social media platforms were flooded with reactions after “Naatu Naatu” and “The Elephant Whisperers” won the Oscars at the 95th Academy Awards. Here are some selected reactions:
The Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also congratulated the team of RRR:
The popularity of ‘Naatu Naatu’ is global. It will be a song that will be remembered for years to come. Congratulations to @mmkeeravaani, @boselyricist and the entire team for this prestigious honour.

Energy, optimism, partnership, winning against odds. #NaatuNaatu is not just a song: it’s a mini-epic movie. No wonder it had people everywhere rising to their feet. Even at the #Oscars I bow low to @ssrajamouli MM Keeravani & Chandrabose. 🙏🏽pic.twitter.com/6urWNclql5
