The Oscar-winning chartbuster from RRR has been at the core of some ‘cultural diplomacy’ in recent weeks
‘Naatu Naatu’ from RRR has set foot tapping, with people grooving to the music all across the world. In recent weeks, it has also been at the core of some ‘cultural diplomacy’ with none other than Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi appreciating efforts in this direction by some foreign missions in the country.

The latest to join the list is the German Embassy in New Delhi, which has put out a video showing the German Ambassador to India and members of the embassy staff matching steps to the Oscar-winning number.

The video, shot in Old Delhi’s Chandni Chowk, was posted on social media by German Ambassador to India and Bhutan Philipp Ackermann. It features Ambassador Ackermann and other German Embassy staffers dancing to the well-known song in a flash mob in the Chandni Chowk neighbourhood of Old Delhi as a large crowd gathers to watch them.

The German Ambassador added a caption that reads, “Germans can’t dance? Me and my Indo-German team celebrated #NaatuNaatu’s victory at #Oscar95 in Old Delhi. Ok, far from perfect. But fun! Thanks Korean Embassy India for inspiring us. Congratulations & welcome back Ram Charan and the RRR movie team! #embassychallange is open. Who’s next?”

Prime Minister Modi tweeted in response to the post from the German Ambassador and wrote, "The colours and flavours of India! Germans can surely dance and dance well!"

This came weeks after the South Korean Embassy in New Delhi recreated the super-hit song and posted a video on social media celebrating the catchy song.

Posting the video on February 26, the South Korean Embassy wrote, "Naatu Naatu RRR Dance Cover – Korean Embassy in India

Do you know Naatu? We are happy to share with you the Korean Embassy's Naatu Naatu dance cover. See the Korean Ambassador Chang Jae-bok along with the embassy staff Naatu Naatu!!

"Lively and adorable team effort," Prime Minister Modi responded, along with a thumbs up emoticon.

The song and the film have won the admiration of many diplomats from all around the world. The film was deemed "interesting" by Alex Ellis, the British High Commissioner to India. Additionally, French Consul General Tudor also praised the cool approach of Indians towards cinema and film.

The song ‘Naatu Naatu’, composed by MM Keeravaani and written by Chandrabose, from the historical action movie RRR, made history by being the first Indian song to win an Oscar Award for Best Original Song. After a Golden Globe and a Critics Choice Award, this is the chartbuster's third major international honour.

Following the win at the Oscars, ‘Naatu Naatu’ fever has swept the globe, causing people to dance and shake their legs to the song.
