Did SS Rajamouli’s son Karthikeya get the maths all wrong? – Times of India

RRR director SS Rajamouli’s son Karthikeya who helped his father with the VFX of the mega-film, recently claimed in a press interview that the RRR team had spent only Rs 8.5 crore to campaign for the Oscars.
This is not only an erroneous figure, it is also preposterous. A well-informed source in Hyderabad tells us, “Everyone even remotely connected to RRR knows they spent at least 80 crores lobbying for the Oscars. This was for SS Rajamouli for direction, Ram Charan and NTR Jr for acting and MM Keeravani for the song Naatu Naatu. When Naatu Naatu was the only Oscar nominee, the team felt a little cheated and let down. So they decided to scale down the amount. But you can’t change 80 crores to 8.5 crores (Note: It was reported that the team may have spent 80 crores instead of the more conservative estimate of 50 crores). It is downright absurd.”

The source says Karthikeya did his own maths to save RRR from further questioning on the Oscars bill. Instead he has laid the RRR team open to a litany of questioning.
