Renowned Tollywood film maker Bapu finally got Padma Sri Award for his profound contribution to the films. Many telugu movie lovers are proud that finally Bapu who won many National Awards finally got due recognition. However one will be surprised to know that Andhra Pradesh chose not to recommend Bapu’s name this time after Centre didn’t consider his nomination for couple of years, last being the previous year.
However neighbouring state Tamil Nadu known to recognise talent anywhere across the country recommend him for Padma Sri Award and Centre duly felicitated the great film maker. It is a different matter that Padmasri is very small compared to his monumental achievements but what AP couldn’t do, TN did it honouring Bapu in the most fitting manner.
