DVV DANAYYA ON WHETHER RS 80 CRORES WAS SPENT FOR RRR’S OSCAR CAMPAIGN
DVV Danayya has finally opened up about rumours of Rs 80 crores being spent on RRR’s campaign in the West ahead of the Oscars season. Talking to Telugu 360, the producer said, “I also heard about the money spent for the Oscar campaign. I haven’t spent any money for the campaign and I am not aware of what happened exactly. But no one spends Rs 80 crores for an award event. There would be no profits involved in it.”
