Naatu Naatu fever
The megahit Naatu Naatu got the Oscar for the Best Original Song earlier this year after bagging the Golden Globes in January. The film, RRR, went on to win two more awards at the 28th Critics Choice Awards — one for best song and another for best foreign language film.
The Naatu Naatu fever has gone viral across the world, especially after it was performed at the Oscars to a standing ovation.

The film RRR was released in multiple languages and the song’s Hindi version is called Naacho Naacho, Tamil one as Naattu Koothu, Kannada one as Halli Naatu, and Malayalam one as Karinthol.
Rahul Sipligunj and Vishal Mishra have sung the Hindi version. The hook steps, performed by Jr NTR and Ram Charan, went viral on social media, and their energetic synchronisation has made the song a treat to watch.
