'RRR' song 'Naatu Naatu' has become quite a rage and the fever keeps on catching on to everyone. The song recently won an Oscar for Best Original Song earlier this week, and the uber-popular track defeated the songs of Rihanna and Lady Gaga to win the accolade. There was a thunderous performance at the Oscars 2023 as well, and the performers had received a rousing reception once the performance came to an end.

It looks like the 'Naatu Naatu' fever has gripped batter Virat Kohli as well. The right-handed batter was seen doing the hook step of the song during the 1st ODI against Australia at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Virat Kohli decided to do the hook step of 'Naatu Naatu' during Australia's batting innings. 

Kohli was standing at the first slip, and it was then that he decided to do the 'Naatu Naatu' dance.

The video of Kohli doing the hook step of 'Naatu Naatu' was even shared by the official Twitter handle of 'RRR' Movie. 

Watch the viral clip here:

Composed by M.M Keeravani, ‘Naatu Naatu’ was competing with Rihanna's 'Lift Me Up,' 'This Is a Lie by Mitski, David Bryne, Lady Gaga's 'Hold My Hand’, and Diane Warren's 'Applause’ at Oscars 2023.

Talking about ‘RRR’, the movie stars Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Shriya Saran, Alia Bhatt, and Ajay Devgn, among others. The film tells a fictional story based on the lives of two Telugu freedom fighters -- Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem, with Ram Charan and Jr NTR playing the lead roles. 

Coming to the 1st ODI between India and Australia, the former ended up winning the match by five wickets. Chasing 189, India lost their top order cheaply but KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja played unbeaten knocks of 75 and 45 to take the hosts over the line. 

Australia batted first and they were able to post just 188 runs on the board, Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami scalped three wickets each for India.

India and Australia will now square off in the 2nd ODI of the three-match series on Sunday.
