HYDERABAD: Actor Nandamuri Kalyan Ram, whose recent movie ‘Kalyanram Kathi’ was a box office dud, has more to worry about than just that. Graduates and alumni of BITS-Pilani are angry on him for his statement in a local TV channel interview that he got into BITS-Pilani years ago, thanks to the recommendation of his grandfather NT Rama Rao, the then Chief Minister.
He goofed up further by saying that he finished his 10+1 and 10+2 in BITS-Pilani. The video of this interview is now popular on Youtube with youngsters laughing at the actor. Facebook and twitter are flooded with jokes on his statement. BITS graduates claim that recommendations don’t work in BITS and there is nothing called management quota in the institute.
They also remind that BITS-Pilani doesn’t offer 10+2 at all and demand the actor to apologise for making such remarks that lower the image of their institution. Students say he never went to BITS and has no clue of how the institution works.
A few of them are even posting his Wikipedia link to show that he wasn’t even old enough to get into BITS when his grandfather passed away.
