Deepika Padukone along with Telugu stars Ram Charan and Jr. NTR attended the Vanity Fair Oscar Party shortly after ‘Naatu ‘Naatu’ won Best Original Song at the 95th Academy Awards. The supercharged dance number from SS Rajamouli’s RRR was one of two Oscar wins for India — the other being Kartiki Gonsalves’s The Elephant Whisperers for Best Documentary Short Subject.
Jr. NTR and Ram Charan turned up at the Vanity Fair after-party in their matching dark outfits. NTR’s velvety ensemble featured an emblazoned golden tiger on his right shoulder. Ram Charan wore medallion brooches recalling his character, Alluri Sitarama Raju, in RRR.
Deepika, meanwhile, ditched her Oscars night black gown for a purple fur dress for the Vanity Fair blue carpet.
‘Naatu Naatu’ was also performed live at the Oscars ceremony by singers Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava. Padukone presented the song on stage and declared it a ‘total banger’.
