SS Rajamouli’s RRR has brought Indian cinema to the global level. We all know that the magnum opus film has made history after winning an Oscar for Best Original Song for Naatu Naatu. The Oscars main event was attended by Naatu Naatu’s lyricist Chandrabose, music composer MM Keeravani, Rajamouli, his family with Ram Charan, Jr NTR and their respective wives. However, if the reports are to be believed, except for composer MM Keeravani and lyricist Chandrabose, everyone else on Team RRR had to pay a huge price to attend the Oscars.
According to the Economic Times report, only Chandrabose and MM Keeravani and their spouses received free admission to the Oscars. While Rajamouli had to buy tickets for his team members. According to the report, Rajamouli had to pay $25,000 (approximately 20 lakhs) per person to witness the event. According to the Academy Awards team, only the awardee and their family members will be eligible for a free pass, while everyone else had to pay for a ticket to watch the event live.
Hence, SS Rajamouli is said to have bought tickets for himself and the other members of his team to witness the historic moment. Earlier, several netizens expressed their dissatisfaction after the video of the team appeared on the Internet. The Academy was criticized for giving back row seats to SS Rajamouli and his team.
Directed by SS Rajamouli, RRR follows the story of two freedom fighters played by Jr NTR and Ram Charan. The film also stars Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Shriya Saran, Samuthirakani, Ray Stevenson, Alison Doody and Olivia Morris in pivotal roles. From breaking box office records around the world to garnering prestigious awards around the globe, the epic action drama continues to turn heads months after its release.
