Bollywood  Salutes M M  Keeravani’s  Golden  Globe




The Hindi  film industry has  embraced  Telugu-Hindi  composer M M Keeravani’s  Golden  Globe for Best Original Song (for  Naatu naatu in  RRR) as  its own triumph.

Says singer  Adnan Sami,  “I’m extremely happy and proud. It’s a great achievement for Telugu Cinema which in turn is a great pride for Indian Cinema & indeed, INDIA!! My prayers are with the entire team to win ever award in the world, especially the Oscars!”

Adds  Saif Ali Khan, “Congrats to the team ! It’s great that we are involved in international award functions.”

R Madhavan feels  proud  of  the  entire RRR team. “So very very happy for Keeravani Sir, and team RRR for doing us proud. Well and truly deserved . It’s a number that might even get me to dance and that’s huge … ha ha ha.”

  Urmila Matondkar  is bedazzled by the victory.   “Spectacular…so well deserved. Such a humble and wonderful speech at the  Golden Globes ceremony as well. Such a massive body of work and then this glory to top it all. Way to go!!!”

Hansal Mehta celebrates the belated  recognition of Keeravani’s genius. “Such a proud moment. Many congratulations to him and the RRR team. He is such an underrated composer unlike many of his more high profile contemporaries. Such brilliant melodies over the years. Now for the Oscars!”

 Keeravani’s  cousin and Rajamouli’s father  Vijayendra Prasad  says the Golden  Globe makes him proud on three levels. “Firstly I am proud as an Indian that our film and song have  got us such global recognition. Secondly I  feel happy as  a family since Rajamouli  is my son and Keeravani is my nephew. And thirdly I feel proud as  a part of  the  RRR team. I think we are blessed by divinity. There are so  many other equally deserving songs  and films. But they don’t get the  same  recognition. I am always proud of my son and nephew. But this  time I am a little prouder than usual.”
