SPB, Hema Malini bag NTR awards

State government revives presentation of four prestigious awards. The Andhra Pradesh government has announced NTR National Film Award to renowned singer S.P. Bala Subramanyam for 2012 and to Hindi film actor Hema Malini for 2013. The NTR award carries a cash award of Rs. 5 lakh and a citation. The State government revived the presentation of four prestigious awards instituted in the name of eminent (प्रतिष्ठित) film personalities– NTR, B.N. Reddy, Nagireddy and Chakrapani (all national ) and Raghupathi Venkaiah Film Award after a gap of five years. Film director Singeetham Srinivasa Rao won the B.N. Reddy National Film Award for 2012. The other two awards – Nagireddy and Chakrapani National Film Award – went to film producer Daggupati Suresh and Raghupathi Venkaiah Film Award to film director Kodi Rama Krishna for 2012. For 2013, NTR National Film Award was conferred on Hema Malini, B.N. Reddy National Film Award on Director Kodanda Remireddy, Nagireddy and Chakrapani National Film Award on producer Dil Raju and Raghupathi Venkaiah Film Award on actor Vanisree. The committee constituted by the Andhra Pradesh government comprising (इसमें शामिल हैं) prominent film industry personalities selected eminent persons in recognition of their distinguished service and contribution to the film industry, made the announcement here on Tuesday.

Addressing the media, actors Murali Mohan and Balakrishna said the committee submitted the list of awardees for the two years to the Chief Minister, N. Chandrababu Naidu, and he gave his approval 10 days ago, but due care was taken not to leak the information.

They said the awards could not be announced since 2012 because of disturbing situation prevailing due to bifurcation(विभाजन). After 2014, the AP government was grappling(जूझना) with bifurcation related issues and did not have a capital of its own. Finally Chief Minister said the backlog of awards for the last five years from 2012 to 2016 should be cleared. Mr. Murali Mohan said they did not want to discriminate(भेदभाव) between Telugu people of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana as the film industry was one. The committee as well as awardees belonged to both the States. Committees would be soon constituted for selection of awardees for 2014, 2015 and 2016 for Nandi awards for film, theatre, Television and NTR national awards and the process would be completed in two months. The awards for all the five years would be presented at a grand function to be held over two days in October or November. 

The venue is yet to be decided. 2012 also marked the golden jubilee of Nandi awards.
