Tollywood actor-producer Nandamuri Kalyan Ram gave a statement in a local TV channel interview that he got into BITS-Pilani years ago because of the recommendation of his grandfather the late 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 having a good laugh at the actor. Facebook and twitter are flooded with jokes on his statement. BITS graduates claim that recommendations never work in BITS and there is nothing called management quota in the institute.
In fact, BITS-Pilani doesn’t offer 10+2 at all and the BITS graduates demand Kalyan Ram to apologise for making such remarks that lower the image of their institution.
