NTR Jr Says His ‘Legs Still Hurt’ From Shooting ‘Naatu Naatu’
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Superstar NTR Jr says that the steps from his iconic number ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the film ‘RRR’ were not tough, but it was the “sync” which was tougher. He adds that his “legs still hurt” from shooting the song, for which he and his co-star Ram Charan practiced over three hours everyday.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, NTR Jr, was asked if there was a moment that this film is crossing all global lines, and everyone is loving it?
The Indian actor replied: “We had no idea. The experience of shooting that song, I have been telling this… My legs still hurt.”
Asked about the Oscars, NTR Jr replied with a smile: “What else could an actor ask for, what else would a filmmaker ask for to be a part of the biggest celebration of cinema globally, the Oscars.”
He added on the big day, he would not be walking the red carpet as an actor but as an Indian.
“For that day… I think we are not going to walk as actors of ‘RRR’. I am not going to walk as an actor from the Indian film industry. I am going to walk as an Indian on that carpet with pride filled in my heart carrying my nation in my heart.”
S.S. Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ bagged a nomination in the Best Original Song category at the 95th Oscar Awards for its livewire track ‘Naatu Naatu’.
