‘My first Oscar’

‘Naatu Naatu’ song maker MM Keeravani named Ram Gopal Varma as his ‘first Oscar’ in an interview and talked about how the filmmaker gave him a breakthrough with the 1991 crime thriller film ‘Kshana Kshanam’.


Keeravani in an interview with Baradwaj Rangan had been asked about his breakthrough with the director, to which he replied: “Ram Gopal Varma was my first Oscar. Now I received the Academy Award in 2023, it is my second Oscar. Let me tell you why. Because like all the people I approach around 51 people, they might have… some of them might have thrown my audio cassette into the trash can… never heard me.”

“A stranger approaches you and asks you to listen to his tune… some of them might have liked but they are not interested. But that was my merit.” Quoted Telangana Today.

He added: “Ram Gopal Varma gave me a chance to work for his movie ‘Kshana Kshanam’, but he was the ‘Siva’ Ram Gopal Verma… Siva played an Oscar role for him because it was his first movie being a mega-hit.”


“And Ram Gopal Varma played an Oscar role in my career. He was my Oscar.”

Here’s the full interview:

Keeravani added: “So, who is this Keeravani who is this person… you never heard of him. But Mr. Ram Gopal Verma is working with him now. That must be something. Book him, come on! Let’s have him for our project also. That’s how Ram Gopal Varma’s association helped me in getting more chances. That’s how he helped me a lot.”


Ram Gopal Varma, however, responded to the clip by jokingly stating, “Hey @mmkeeravaani. I am feeling dead because only dead people are praised like this. (sic)”

Meanwhile, MM Keeravani’s song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘RRR’ brought the 95th Oscar Award in the Best Original Song category. The song has also won a Golden Globe honor and was also honored with the Critics Choice Award.
