It's a terrific day for Indian cinema as "RRR," the filmmaker SS Rajamouli's magnum opus period action drama film, has won two additional accolades at the 28th edition of the Critics' Choice Awards in addition to the famous Golden Globe honour. The Critics' Choice Award for Best Song went to "RRR," starring Jr. NTR and Ram Charan, for the song "Naatu Naatu." In a ceremony held in Los Angeles, it also won the "Critics' Choice" award for the best foreign language picture.

"Congratulations to the cast and crew of @RRRMovie, winners of the #criticschoice Award for Best Foreign Language Film. #CriticsChoiceAwards," read a tweet from the Critics Choice Award account.

Team "RRR" posted a video to their Twitter account with the description "Naatu Naatu Again!! Extremely delighted to share that we won the #CriticsChoiceAwards for the BEST SONG #RRRMovie Here's @mmkeeravaani`s acceptance speech!"

"Thank you so much. I am overwhelmed with this award. I am here to receive this wonderful award from the critics. Thank you all the critics, on behalf of my chorographer, lyrics writer, singers, programmers, and of course my director (sic)," Keeravaani is heard saying in the video.

Naatu Naatu by Keeravani also just won the Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) award for outstanding music.

The update was posted on RRR's official Instagram page. On RRR's Instagram account, a post stated, "Congratulations to our Music Director #MMKeeravaani on winning the Award for BEST MUSIC/SCORE for #RRRMovie at @lafilmcritics."

The story RRR is based on the lives of two Telugu freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem. The lead roles were played by Ram Charan and Jr. NTR, respectively. The film grossed over Rs 1,200 crore worldwide. The movie also featured Shriya Saran, Alia Bhatt, and Ajay Devgn.

The "RRR" hit song "Naatu Naatu" by MM Keeravani, Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava's energetic performance, Prem Rakshith's original choreography, and Chandrabose's lyrics make it the perfect dance craze.
