RamCharan_JRNTR_Oscars2023RRR scripted history at the Oscars as Naatu Naatu won the best original song award at the mighty prestigious awards event.

Coming to the point, The Academy reportedly asked Ram Charan and Jr NTR to perform Naatu Naatu live on Oscar’s stage. The discussions were held in February, a month prior to the gala event.

However, Charan and Tarak declined the proposal to dance for Naatu Naatu live on stage due to their other professional commitments and the lack of time to rehearse this draining and challenging dance number, revealed Raj Kapoor who works closely with the Academy awards.

Naatu Naatu was then reimagined and recreated with a team of professional dancers from Los Angeles. They trained extensively for 18 hours to perform the energetic dance number on stage.

Had Charan and Tarak danced live on stage for Naatu Naatu, it would’ve been far more engaging. But given the constraints, and the complexity and intensity associated with the song, they couldn’t take any risks.
