It happened so when Muttathil took to the comments section of a social media post by an international publication, announcing the ‘Naatu’ win, and wrote: “Hahahah this is so funny. I thought only in India we could buy awards lol. But now even Oscars.” “Money and what all we can get when we have the money. Even Oscars lol.”

Several social users were quick to condemn the comment by Muttathil and believed that he is ‘jealous’ as his friend, Fernandez’s song was also in the running for the award and failed to make it to the final cut.
