Newly Oscar-nominated composer M.M. Keeravani can now put on his dancing shoes after securing a spot in Best Original Song for his popular song “Naatu Naatu” from the Indian action-comedy film RRR. In speaking with Deadline on Tuesday about his nomination, Keeravani revealed that he was working—and definitely not dancing—at his recording studio on an upcoming film when he asked the director to put a momentary pause on their activities. And it was for good reason.
Keeravani’s Best Original Song nomination makes history at the 95th Academy Awards for being the first song from an Indian Film production to land in that category. (Not to be confused with Indian songwriter-composer A.R. Rahman’s 2009 Oscar win for “Jai Ho” in the British production Slumdog Millionaire.)
