deserves a Padmasri: Chiranjeevi
Bapu is one of the most talented writer/cartoonist/director
in India today and he did not get the honor he deserves
from the government. Chiranjeevi urged that Bapu should
be given at least Padma Sri honor. Chiranjeevi recollected
a statement from a foreigner that Bapu would have
got international fame for his talent in line drawing
if he were not born in India. Chiranjeevi praised
that any work by the legendry duo of Bapu - Ramana
epitomizes the essence of Teluguness. He also said
that he would come forward to act in Bapu's films
any day. He recollected the days when he was asked
for audition in Manavoori Pandavulu film. Bapu is
also a devotee of Lord Anjaneya like Chiranjeevi.
During that time Bapu complimented that Chiranjeevi's
eyes are very expressive and powerful. That compliment
worked like tonic for Chiranjeevi. He opined that
Srikanth is very lucky to have worked with Bapu.
