Rajamouli feels mixed moments on Padmasri Award

Jan 26, 2016

Ace Director SS Rajamouli has been announced Padmasri Award and the director feels that he is not eligible for this award. He has expressed his feelings through his Social Networking Page.

About the achieved Padmasri Award,"I don't know what to say. It is quite a mixed feeling. Very frankly i don't feel I deserve the honour. This is not humility. I am quite aware of my achievements. But i haven't created any artistic brilliance that deserves this honour. Awarding Ramoji rao garu and Rajanikanth garu with Padma Vibhushan is so apt. Their work created a lasting impression that will reflect even on generations to come. It makes me even more humbled to share the occasion with such stalwarts. But cant deny that it also makes me so happy and proud to be with them".

He also stated,"Last year the govt of AP wanted to recommend my name for PadmaSri. I requested them not to citing the same reasons. They insisted. But upon my repeated requests, they dropped my name. This year i was not consulted. I was wondering how this happened when i came to know that i was recommended by the Karnataka govt. I was born in Karnataka, studied in Andhra Pradesh, worked in Tamilnadu and settled in Telangana. Happy to be a son of all the states".

The director has made glory to the Country with his glorious talent serving in Entertainment field. Wishing all the success come in future with more and more awards recognizing his talent.
