Trending News: Naatu Naatu has taken the world by storm and the German embassy in India is the latest to be bitten by the bug. The viral song from SS Rajamouli’s RRR won an Oscar in the Best Original song category and has prompted many people to make dance videos. The German embassy staff, led by Ambassador Dr. Philipp Ackermann, recently shot a video dancing to the hit song in Delhi's Chandni Chowk.
In the over 2-minute clip, Ackermann is seen strolling in the lanes of Chandni Chowk when a man appears with a boombox blasting Naatu Naatu.

The video was shared on Twitter by Ackermann, who thanked the South Korean embassy for inspiring him and challenged other embassies to do the same. Later, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was impressed by the viral video, expressed his admiration by retweeting it with kind words. The video caption reads, "The colors and flavors of India!
