Best Original Song, Naatu Naatu composer, MM Keeravani’s emotional speech at Golden Globe Awards
While the RRR team’s photos from the 2023 Golden Globe Awards have received a lot of praise from the public, everyone was moved by MM Keeravani’s prize acceptance speech. The famous composer was speaking to the crowd inside The Beverly Hilton Hotel when he became overwhelmed. The talented composer MM Keeravani, however, refrained from crying and thanked his wife, MM Srivalli, for her unwavering support throughout his career.
In his speech, MM Keeravani further expressed gratitude to SS Rajamouli for having faith in him and to the actors Ram Charan and Jr. NTR, whose enthusiastic dance routines elevated this song even further. The composer’s award-winning speech is now quickly ascending the hot lists via video.
RRR lost to Argentina 1985 in the Best Non-English Language Film category
Argentina 1985 won the award for Best Non-English Language Film, defeating SS Rajamouli’s RRR, which was also nominated in that category. However, the nomination of one of their films for a Golden Globe was undoubtedly a momentous occasion for the Indian film community.
The fact that billions of filmmakers from all over the world compete to be nominated for this renowned awards show each year speaks volumes about the intense competition for those spots. The fact that SS Rajamouli’s RRR was nominated that evening for Best Non-English Language Cinema is unquestionably a major accomplishment for the Indian film industry.
A few days ago, Jr. NTR posted a picture of music composer MM Keeravani on his Instagram handle. The renowned composer is seen standing on stage and looking at his Golden Globe Award.
