MM Keeravani made history when RRR's Naatu Naatu won the prestigious Oscar 2023 nomination. The song also won the Golden Globes 2023 in the Best Original Song category. Keeravaani was also awarded the Padma Shri. AR Rahman recently spoke to News18 and spoke highly about Keeravaani.“First of all, Keeravani is a great composer. He was underrated. And, the irony of what life is like… it’s such a great case study. I believe, I don’t know if it’s true, that he wanted to quit music and retire in 2015 and that’s exactly when his career started. We noticed what he is. So anyone who thinks their life is over, maybe that is a point where you have to start to live your life. This is a great example. I keep telling my children, ‘That gentleman, who’s been working for 35 years, wanted to quit but then his career actually started at that point,” Rahman told News18.MM Keeravaani told Deadline, 'It was just a song when it was born, when I saw my song on the screen after the [scene] was done with the choreography, I said, ‘Oh my God! This is my son.’ This was my infant son and now my son became big. He became a major [player]. Now he’s driving cards, he’s dancing, and he has a girlfriend. Yesterday, he was an infant in my cradle. And now my son is going places and bagging a good name for me. I’m like a proud father.'
