Telugu film industry has always received cold treatment when it comes to National Film Awards. The number of Telugu films that were recognized at the National Awards is so small that Telugu movie lovers have lost all hopes to see our films emerge victorious at National level.
Film Federation of India has now recommended historical Telugu film "Rudhramadevi" for the Oscar Awards in the 'Best Foreign Language Film' category. The news has been confirmed by the film's director Gunasekhar himself. This really is a proud moment for the Telugu film industry.
Released in 2015, 'Rudhramadevi' is the India's first historical 3D film. It depicted the story of queen Rudramadevi, who ruled the Kakatiya kingdom. The film has already won several state level awards. Starring Anushka Shetty in the titular role, the film had hefty support from Allu Arjun and Rana Daggubati.
Gunasekhar is currently planning to make the biopic of 'Prathapa Rudrudu', the grandson of 'Rudhramadevi'.
