Telugu Cinema’s ace lyric writer Sirivennela Seetha Ram Sastry’s name declared for Padmashri, which is one of the highest civilian awards in the country given by the government of India.
Actually, Sirivennela is Sastry's debut film, which was a big musical hit and the name turned as his surname long back. Sirivennela is known for super hit songs which are meant to entertain and educate the audiences. In the modern trend of cinema also Sirivennela never took a chance with nasty and silly words.
On the other hand, dancing sensation and the best dancer in India, Prabhudeva is awarded Padmasri, while Malayalam cinema Super Star Mohanlal is awarded Padmabhushan.
