How Much Did SS Rajamouli Pay To Attend Oscars?
Bhubaneswar: The entire team of RRR, including SS Rajamouli, leading men Jr NTR and Ram Charan, veteran music composer MM Keeravani and lyricist Chandra Bose, and their family members were at the 95th Academy Awards in Los Angeles when ‘Naatu Naatu’ won the Oscar for Best Original Song.
Since only the awardees and their family members were eligible for free pass, Rajamouli purchased tickets for himself, the rest of the RRR team, and their family members so that they could attend the Oscars. He had to pay $25,000 (roughly 20 lakh) per head, the Economic Times reported.
Rajamouli was accompanied by his wife Rama, son SS Kartikeya, and the other family members. Ram Charan was accompanied by his wife Upasana Kamineni, while Jr NTR made a solo entry in the event.
Notably, a section of fans had earlier expressed displeasure with the Academy Awards organisers for giving the RRR team the last row in the hall.
