On the sidelines of the second Agriculture Deputies Meeting (ADM) of the Agriculture Working Group under India’s G20 presidency, G20 delegates danced to the tune of the Oscar-winning “Naatu Naatu.”
The meeting began on Wednesday in Chandigarh. The delegates were seen shaking their legs with Chandigarh’s local dancers. They appeared to be in a festive mood.
The cross-cultural hit ‘Naatu Naatu’ bagged the prestigious Oscar for India beating “This Is A Life” from “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” “Applause” from “Tell It Like a Woman,” and “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”.
Before winning the Oscars, the song bagged awards on the global stage. In January, ‘Naatu Naatu’ won the Golden Globes in the ‘Best Original Song’ category. Five days later, ‘RRR’ bagged two more awards at the 28th edition of the Critics Choice Awards. One is for the best song and another is for ‘best foreign language film.’
The song was also released in Hindi as ‘Naacho Naacho’, in Tamil as ‘Naattu Koothu’, in Kannada as ‘Halli Naatu’ and in Malayalam as ‘Karinthol’. Its Hindi version was sung by Rahul Sipligunj and Vishal Mishra.
The hook steps, performed by Jr NTR and Ram Charan, went viral on social media and their energetic synchronisation made the song a treat to watch.
