“Naatu Naatu”, the dynamic fun number from the Telugu blockbuster “RRR, made history after being selected as the ‘best original song-motion picture’ at the Golden Globes. The song pipped the likes of Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Lady Gaga, on its way to bag the prestigious honor at a star-spangled awards ceremony.

This is the first time that an Indian production is winning a Golden Globe and the first film from Asia to win the category at the Golden GLobes. The widely popular song was composed by M M Keeravani and sung by Kalabhairava, and features RRR Ram Charan and Jr NTR in the lead in the movie.

Organized by Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the prestigious awards ceremony marked the beginning of the Hollywood season. The awards were given on Tuesday night.

Accepting the award in front of a star-studded audience, Keeravani said he was thrilled by the song’s Golden Globe feat. Several Indian film stars and politicians, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, took to social media to congratulate the entire crew just as the news went public.

The prime minister wrote on his twitter account: “A very special accomplishment! Compliments to @mmkeeravaani, Prem Rakshith, Kaala Bhairava, Chandrabose, @Rahulsipligunj. I also congratulate @ssrajamouli, @tarak9999, @AlwaysRamCharan and the entire team of @RRRMovie. This prestigious honour has made every Indian very proud.

Shah Rukh Khan wrote on Twitter that he “woke up and started dancing to Naatu Naatu” to celebrate the news while Oscar-winner AR Rahman called the feat a “paradigm shift” in Indian film.

Written and directed by SS Rajamouli, RRR, which stands for Rise, Roar, Revolt, is a historical fantasy that tells the rollicking story of two revolutionaries who fight against British rule in India. The film’s music consisting mostly of romantic ballads, gleeful dance numbers and patriotic anthems, has also won over fans.

RRR also was also in the race to win the best non-English picture but was lost out to eventual winner Argentina’s historical drama Argentina, 1985. Despite losing in the best non-English picture, RRR brought loud cheers to the Indian showbiz by bagging the coveted award for the best original song.
