Jeevitha Rajasekhar Vs Gunasekhar over Nandi Awards Controversy


Nandi Awards are the most controversial awards whenever they announced. Their selection of awardees always makes controversies. Jeevitha Rajasekhar, the chairman of Nandi Awards Jury is also in news after making some controversial comments about the selection. When she asked about why Nandi Jury denying awards for Rudramadevi instead of presenting awards to Baahubali? She simply told “Baahubali is much superior in quality & content than Rudramadevi. It’s because of this reason Gunasekhar’s film was not able to bag best movie award.”


In response to the issue of selecting Allu Arjun as Best Character Artist role when the filmmakers sent nominations for Best Supporting Actor, she said “They should feel it as Honor. This particular award was presented in memory of a great actor like S V Ranga Rao.” Oh! We are really getting surprised with her explanation.

Gunasekhar made counter comments on Jeevitha in a press event and questioned that 'Doesn't Rudramadevi deserve either 2nd Best or 3rd Best Film Award? At least, they should have offered Special Jury Award for such a historical flick. I don't know in what way the films which received the above awards are better than 'Rudramadevi.”



We can observe that Jeevitha made an announcement “Chandrababu rocking…TDP rocking” at the time of Nandi Awards press meet. What does it mean? When media asked her like “Madam, Are you joining to TDP?” then, she simply replied, “Why wouldn’t I join if they ask!”  Gunasekhar also questioned on this comment by saying “What kind of message it sends to the society? Doesn’t it mean there is the political influence on the Jury Members have been craving for political gains?”
There is a number of counter attacks are started on Nandi Award Jury about their selection. Let’s look forward to seeing how they respond.
