Gulshan Devaiah, an actor, has come out in support of Jr NTR after some people on social media criticised his accent on the Golden Globes red carpet. “We thought, taking Rajamouli's track record into consideration, we definitely thought we had a winner. But this was something more than a winner in Japan and today, America… come on, you don't expect this to happen.” Several people, however, took to social media to complain about his accent.
Responding to a journalist, he also tweeted, "I think if NTR jr lived in the US, he’d sound exactly like how he sounded now. It is because that’s how HE would speak as a first gen immigrant. We all have relatives with even worse accents who’ve been living in the US for decades. Yet we think we’re experts on accents."
RRR, directed by SS Rajamouli, won the Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture – Drama. The film's Naatu Naatu song was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Song. The song Naatu Naatu, is written by Kala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj. And It is composed by MM Keeravaani.
After the win, Jr NTR took to Instagram and praised Keeravaani. "Congratulations Sirji on your well-deserved #GoldenGlobes award. I've danced to many songs throughout my career but #NaatuNaatu will forever stay close to my heart... #mmkeeravaani #rrrmovie." RRR depicts the life of two real-life Indian revolutionaries - Alluri Sitarama Raju (Ram Charan) and Komaram Bheem (Jr NTR) - in the 1920s.
