SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ has finally made everyone’s dream come true and ‘Naatu Naatu’ song won the Oscar award making it the first Indian production to ever win an Academy award. Composer MM Keeravani and lyricist Chandrabose accepted the award on the stage while the rest of the ‘RRR’ team were totally overjoyed. It is not an achievement for the movie’s unit but it is the victory of the whole country. While everyone is appreciating the ‘RRR’ team for winning the Oscar, makeup artist Shaan Muttathil claims that this award has been bought.
Shaan Muttathil who is the makeup artist of popular actress Jacqueline Fernandez is not at all happy with ‘Naatu Naatu’ winning the Oscar award as he took to Instagram and wrote, “Hahahah this is so funny. I thought only in India we could buy awards lol. But now even the Oscars. Money and what all we can get when we have the money. Even Oscars lol.” This comment has been deleted now but people who saw it were quick enough to take screenshots and shared it on social media.
Going into the details, Jacqueline Fernandez acted in a film titled ‘Tell It Like A Woman’ and the song ‘Applause’ from the movie was in contention to win the Oscar in the Best Original Song category. As we know, MM Keeravani’s ‘Naatu Naatu’, Rihanna’s ‘Lift Me Up’, Lady Gaga’s ‘Hold My Hand’ and ‘This Is Life’ were also in the race. The award went to ‘Naatu Naatu’ song which turned to be the first Oscar for a straight Indian film.
Jacqueline’s film not getting the Oscar seems to have hurt the feelings of her makeup artist and he took out his frustration on social media. This resulted in him facing a lot of heat on social media which made him delete his comment instantly. It looks like a lot of people are not happy with ‘RRR’ getting an Oscar and making the Indians proud.
Prior to the award, the Oscar-winning song was performed live on the stage by singers Kaala Bhairava and Rahul Sipligunj. It got a standing ovation and even the host Jimmy Kimmel talked about this song in his monologue.
