SS Rajamouli’s RRR song Naatu Naatu, composed by MM Keeravaani, won the Golden Globe Award in the Best Original Song category. Social media platforms are flooded with congratulatory messages for the makers of the film for their historic victory.
On Wednesday, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy congratulated RRR team and said the ‘Telugu flag is flying high’. However, his tweet did not go down well with singer Adnan Sami who asked the CM not to separate Andhra Pradesh from the rest of the country.
The CM wrote, “The #Telugu flag is flying high! On behalf of all of #AndhraPradesh, I congratulate @mmkeeravaani, @ssrajamouli, @tarak9999, @AlwaysRamCharan and the entire team of @RRRMovie. We are incredibly proud of you! #GoldenGlobes2023.”
Replying to his tweet, the singer wrote, “Telugu flag? You mean INDIAN flag right? We are Indians first & so kindly stop separating yourself from the rest of the country…Especially internationally, we are one country! This ‘separatist’ attitude is highly unhealthy as we saw in 1947!!! Thank you…Jai HIND.”

RRR wins big
The trophy was collected by veteran music director MM Keeravaani who has composed the song in Telugu, and the image will surely be etched in the minds of Indian cinema lovers for a long time.
‘RRR’ stars Jr NTR, Ram Charan, Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, Samuthirakani, Ray Stevenson, Alison Doody, and Olivia Morris. It centres around two real-life Indian revolutionaries, Alluri Sitarama Raju and Komaram Bheem, their fictional friendship and their fight against the British Raj.
Set in the 1920s, the plot explores the undocumented period in their lives when both the revolutionaries chose to go into obscurity before they began the fight for their country.
