As you have been noticing from the past few months, the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh has led to a significant change in the way the whole system of governance has been functioning. This has also affected the Tollywood circuit largely and now it has funneled into the awards segment.
So far, the Nandi awards were given to the chosen ones from the fields of cinema, stage and TV but with the new state of Telangana coming into existence, the Nandi awards is being relegated to Andhra Pradesh only. With this, discussions have begun among Telangana intellectuals as to what they would be naming the awards in the new state.
One name that sounds apt is the quote from the famous Dasarathi Krishnamacharyulu which goes like this ‘Naa Telangana, Koti Ratanala Veena…’. In that, Ratanala Veena is sounding apt for naming the awards, feel many of the T-intellectuals. Well, it has to be seen what the cinematography minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav and CM KCR think about this.
