Renowned director Bapu is once again nominated by Andhra Pradesh state Govt fr the Padma Bhushan Award. It is an irony that though he is most talented lesser mortals got Padmas while he was ignored time and again. Bapu shot to fame once again with his mythological wonder Sri Rama Rajyam with Balakrishna.
Bapu won National awards, Nandi awards but mysteriously Padma deserted him.The awards will be presented by the Government of India on the eve of Republic Day on January 26th. Dr.D Ramanaidu and Dr. C. Narayana Reddy’s names have been recommended for the Padma Visbhushan category.
