VRO / VRA Exam Study Materials - Nandi Awards


sponsored links

Almost all Telugu people know about the Nandi Awards. Frankly speaking, this is the only film award ceremony of A.P. from which we can get some questions in competitive exams (of course there are a number of private movie award functions like santhosham cine awards, maa movie awards, mirchi awards etc. But they are not so popular as they are claiming). Nandi Awards are famous because these awards are presented by the Govt of Andhra Pradesh for excellence in Telugu cinema, Telugu Theater, Telugu Television, and Life time achievements in Indian cinema etc. 

As all telugu people know, the "Nandi" means "Bull". This name came after the famous bull statue in the "Lepakshi". Nandi is a symbol of telugu culture. This awards first started in the year 1964.  Nandi Awards are presented in four different type of categories. Based on the category they give Nandis made of different metals like Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Copper. Nandi Awards last awarded for the year 2011.

Important Note : Usually in awards ceremonies they give awards in the same year or the very next year. But our AP government is little different. They gave the Nandi Awards of the year 2011 on 11th April 2013. The awards for the year 2012 and 13 are yet to give.

 Now a days these awards are becoming controversial and losing their charm. But we have to remember these names for the sake of our examination. Happy Reading :)
