Gunasekhar’s Question for Chandrababu on Rudhramadevi
Critically acclaimed filmmaker Gunasekhar after a series of debacles produced a periodic drama titled Rudhramadevi. Though the film received tax exemption in Telangana, AP Government did not approve the proposal of tax exemption. Now the AP Government announced Nandi awards for the years 2014, 15 and 16 respectively. He even reminded that Balakrishna’s Gautamiputra Satakarni has been given tax exemption last year and his film Rudhramadevi did not receive a single award as he questioned AP Government regarding the tax exemption.
Rudhramadevi elevated the culture and the life story of warrior queen Rudhramadevi but it failed to impress the jury asked Gunasekhar. “I directed a film reminding about the history of a warrior queen which could not get minimum appreciation from the AP government. Sorry for making a film like Rudhramadevi” revealed Gunsekhar who questioned the jury along with Chandrababu Naidu about the film missing in the list of the awards for the year 2015.
