Can't get better than receiving standing ovation at Oscars: Lauren Gottlieb on ‘Naatu Naatu’ act
Mumbai, Mar 16 (PTI) Being part of a troupe dancing to "Naatu Naatu", moments before the popular "RRR" song won an Oscar, was a dream-come-true moment for Lauren Gottlieb, content with the act she described as the "most important performance" of her life.
The who's who of Hollywood clapped and stood up after dancers belonging to different ethnicities shook a leg to the hook step of the Academy Award-winning track, sung live on the Dolby Theatre stage by singers Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava during Sunday's ceremony in Los Angeles. Gottlieb, an India-based actor-dancer, said the team achieved their goal with the thunderous response to the performance, originally picturised on "RRR" leading men Ram Charan, Jr NTR, and British actor Olivia Morris.
"We accomplished what we set out to as we were met with a standing ovation from thousands of the biggest names in Hollywood at the Academy Awards. It was the most important performance of my life and it truly made history at the Oscars," she told PTI in an email interview.
