Tollywood industry’s sources have stated that Race Gurram producer Nallamalupu Bujji expressed his disappointment for Race Gurram not getting an award and also for Allu Arjun’s performance in Rudramadevi not properly honored. Meanwhile he opined, “You cannot do such gross injustice to Allu Arjun by calling him a Character Artist rather giving that Best Supporting Actor award”.
Recently director Gunasekhar also opined the same, adding, “The actor who got Best Supporting Award could be given Character Artist award also. But you can’t call Allu Arjun as a character artist by giving him that award”. Moreover for 2015, Allu Arjun was conferred Best Character Artist award and Posani Krishnamurali was given Best Supporting Actor award.
Moreover if we have to speak reality, with many popular awards losing their sheen in the recent times, definitely these trophies just fill showcases at home but nothing else. Talented likes of the country like Aamir Khan branded these awards as a mockery many times. Whether Allu Arjun is called Supporting Actor or Character Artist, there is no way his stardom is going down and his film collections either.
