I can't ask for more...I am currently doing Naatu Naatu more vigorously than Tarak and Charan... Chandra Bose garu..Congratulations...Oscar stage meedha mana paata...thank you... Prem master, your contribution to the song is invaluable.. my personal Oscar goes to you.. Bhairava's BGM is what inspired me to go ahead with Naatu Naatu, after hesitating for a long time. Love you Bhairi babu.."
"Super energetic vocals by Rahul and Bhairava enhanced the song.. The main reason is Tarak and Charan's sync and style. They danced their way into the hearts of audiences across the globe... Sorry for the torture. But I will not hesitate to do it again...* I never dreamt of an Oscar, even in my wildest dream! It is the fans of Naatu Naatu and RRR who believed in it. They instilled the idea in our minds and pushed us forward. A big hug to you all the crazy fans.. It was only possible because of the tireless and relentless efforts of Karthikeya. Proud of you Karth.. My brothers at Walls & Trends worked 24x7 giving shoutouts and made sure that everyone heard about the film and the song. Thank you Pradeep, Harsha and Chaitanya. Efficiently handled by Accolade, Variance, Potentate, Divergent and Cinetic... Thank you... One more step to go...," Rajamouli further added.
