Call it a mere coincidence or a deliberate act of bias but lately whenever the state sponsored or private awards are announced there is always a smell of some controversy. A strong grapevine often makes rounds that heavy lobbying happens to ensure people of their choice become the winners.
The announcement from the government of Andhra Pradesh for the Nandi Award winners also fell into that category. The Raghupathi Venkaiah award has been announced for megastar Chiranjeevi and the best supporting actor has been announced for stylish star Allu Arjun for his role in ‘Rudramadevi’.
Those who heard this are saying out of the long list of awards announced for 3 full years only these 2 awards have been given to the Mega family. This came as a surprise and the thoughts further strengthened after this came out in TV channel debates as well. Wonder what the selection committee has to say to this.
