Telangana CM Revanth Reddy declared that the prestigious Nandi Awards, recognizing excellence in the Telugu film industry, will now be known as the Gaddar Awards, in honor of the legendary revolutionary poet Gaddar. The announcement was made during the celebrations of Gaddar’s birth anniversary at Ravindra Bharathi in Hyderabad last night.
“Since I assumed the role of CM, many Telugu film personalities have requested the resumption of the Nandi Awards. I assured them that these awards will now be named after Gaddar Anna. The Gaddar Awards will be presented annually on Gaddar Anna’s birth anniversary,” stated the CM.
This decision has resonated with fans and well-wishers of the versatile poet. Following the state bifurcation, the governments of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana had shown limited interest in presenting the Nandi Awards. Previously, the Telangana government had proposed renaming them as Simha Awards, but no further action was taken.
