To the Telugu film audience, Rahul Sipligunj is not just a familiar playblack singer but also a memorable winning contestant of the Bigg Boss Telugu show [Sipligunj took home the winning title of Bigg Boss Telugu 3 in 2019]. He became a well recognized name, after the Naatu Naatu song from RRR movie became a viral hit and a global phenomenon.
Just the like most film buffs in India, Rahul Sipligunj too was waiting with bated breath during the Oscar 2023 nominations' live announcement, and his reaction to Naattu Naatu scoring a Best Original song nomination is way too endearing to be missed.
