Why Is Telugu-Film Missing In National Awards???

            A film-circuit that produces highest number of films in this Indian country is blatantly ignored at the National Film Awards. While critics are quoting this as a shame upon Telugu politicians in power, the government has not opened its mouth yet.

The Government of India should and must award a Telugu film under 'Best Regional Film in Telugu' category according to the 'Schedule VIII of the Constitution'. However, like last year, the government ignored picking up a best film from Telugu circuit for 2011 too. The whole of Tollywood expected an appreciation at National Awards for Bapu's cinematic wonder 'Sriramarajyam'. More than feeling disappointed, Tollywood is taking this as an insult. 'Are our MPs and MLAs sleeping? Are we not making entire Indian film industry proud with our movies?' questioned Yalamanchili Saibaba, the producer of Sriramarajyam.

He stated that this is purely an insult and we all should feel pity for our position and asked state ministers at the Centre to check with the Central Government about this dejection. Off course, our politicians are too busy to raise their voice against this oppression as they just want poll-results but not the 'pride' of Telugus!
