If an actor or actress in North gets a couple of good hits, Padma awards will chase them and adorn them. Priyanka Chopra is a classical example. We beg to say that this is not an insult or writing to demean her talent. It is just that same treatment is not meted out to actors down south!
Take for instance the case of Kaikala Satyanarayana. He is fondly known as Navarasa Natanaa Saarvabhouma. He makes us cry, laugh and angry with his extraordinary performances on the screen. The octagenarian had to voice out his displeasure over not getting recognized for the service he did to Cinema!
Who should be blamed for this? The neglect of governments for sure. There was no recommendation from AP or Telangana States to the centre for Padma to Satyanarayana and it’s very sad. More painful to hear him say that he even tried to buy Padma but was stopped by director Viswanath. Shame on our Telugu pride.
