Historic Day for India at Oscars: Naatu-Naatu wins Best Original Song Award, The Elephant Whispers becomes Best Short Documentary Film

Good news came for India on Monday morning from the 95th Oscar Award Ceremony. The song Naatu-Naatu from the film RRR won the award for Best Original Song. Whereas, The Elephant Whispers won the Best Documentary Short Film. However, the documentary feature film All That Breathes has dropped out of the race. India got nominations in these three categories in the Oscar Awards.

Naatu-Naatu had earlier received the title of Best Original Song at the Golden Globes Awards. Chandrabose and composer MM Keerwani, who wrote RRR’s Natu-Natu song at the Oscar ceremony, took the trophy.

The Elephant Whispers has won the award for Best Documentary Short Film. It is directed by Kartiki Gonsalves and produced by Guneet Monga. Guneet expressed her excitement and disbelief, stating “2 women did it for India. I still can’t believe it.”

This is Guneet’s second film, which has received the Oscar Award. Earlier, her film Period End of Sentence received the Oscar Award in the category of Best Documentary Short Film in 2019. The film tells the story of a South Indian couple, Boman and Bailey, who take care of an orphaned baby elephant named Raghu. The bonding between humans and animals has been shown through this film.

Earlier, Kaal-Rahul gave a live performance on RRR’s song Natu-Natu, which received a standing ovation from the audience. Numerous Hollywood and Bollywood stars were in attendance at the Los Angeles award show, dressed in their finest and most fashionable attire. The champagne-colored carpet replaced the traditional red carpet this year. Additionally, Deepika Padukone joined the ceremony as a presenter. The ceremony commenced at 5:30 AM Los Angeles time on Monday morning.
