Desi Twitter Thinks Not Just ‘Naatu Naatu’, Even ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ Deserves An Oscar Award

After the Golden Globes award, the song ‘Naatu Naatu’ from the Telugu film ‘RRR’ won an Oscar. The fact that the chartbuster song won so many awards itself proves that it impressed people across the globe.

But, not just this song, there are scores of other Indian songs that can make everyone groove to its beats, be it a desi or videsi.

Taking to social media, Twitter user @ghamjoon shared that white people would go crazy if they heard the song ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ from the 1998 movie ‘Dil Se’.

Retweeting a tweet that mentioned that ‘Naatu Naatu’ won the Oscar, the user wrote:

“love this but i think white people would go feral if they heard chhaiyya chhaiyya.”

The user further clarified that she is proud that an Indian song won the coveted award. However, she thinks that if westerners start listening to South Asian music, they would never go back.

People online did agree with her thoughts. Here’s what they said:

We can appreciate good OG songs without pulling down ‘Naatu Naatu’. Its equally an epic song and worth every award. What say?
