The Best Original song for Naatu Naatu at the 95th Academy Award might have made India proud but it hasn't been without its share of controversies. There has been this perception that the makers shouldn't have campaigned so aggressively for the Oscar.

An aide of a Bollywood actress has made sensational remarks about the Oscar win. While there is no evidence, he has suggested that the Oscar win was literally bought by the makers of 'RRR'.

The person making the comments is Jacqueline Fernandez's makeup artist Shaan Muttathil. "Hahahah this is so funny. I thought only in India we could buy awards lol (laugh out loud). But now even the Oscars. Money and what all we can get when we have the money. Even Oscars lol," he wrote on Instagram, sparking a row.

It is par for the course for people to cast doubts about achievements. The fact remains that 'Naatu Naatu' is organically popular. It received critical acclaim and popular love much before the Oscars campaign commenced. In countries like Japan and the US (after the OTT release of the movie), 'Naatu Naatu' became extremely popular among a section of the Hollywood establishment.
