Nandi awards selection has received severe criticism from all corners. Director Gunasekhar has slammed AP Government for not giving its due to his film Rudhramadevi which glorified Telugu history. Producer Bunny Vas vented his disappointment as Allu Arjun’s Race Gurram didn’t receive award.
Nallamalupu Bujji questioned credibility of the jury and alleged them of making wrong choices. Many felt that Manam was supposed to get Best Film award since its befitting farewell film for legendary actor Akkineni Nageswar Rao. But Legend has been given best film award and Balakrishna won best actor for same film. Comedian Prudhvi also voiced on Nandi awards selection.
The 30-years-industry actor said that he expected an award for his hilarious performance as boiling star in Laukyam for 2014 but he wasn’t selected. On the other hand, comedian turned producer Bandla Ganesh criticized that it is appears like “cycle” awards rather than Nandi awards as most of the awards are swept by Nandamuri family members who are part of TDP government.
