After the announcement of Nandi Awards from Andhra Pradesh Government, some families in Tollywood are not happy with the winner’s selection. While some showed their anger in their close circles saying that Nandamuri Balakrishna has completely influenced the Nandi Awards Jury committee, other like Geetha Arts film producer, Bunny Vas had openly criticized Nandi Awards and TDP Government.
Bunny Vas had posted a strong tweet against TDP government saying that “All Mega heroes should learn acting skills from TDP Government to achieve AP state awards.”. His sarcasm looks like aimed at Nandamuri heroes who won most of the awards, mainly Balakrishna’s Legend movie which won Nandi Awards for Best Actor, Best Film and Best Director etc.
While Babai Balakrishna won best actor award for the movie "Legend" for the year 2014, abbai Jr Ntr received best actor award for "Nannaku Prematho" and "Janatha Garage" (2016). With this strong emotional criticism from Bunny Vas, who is treated as the fourth son of Allu Aravind, mega fans started trolling Nandamuri fans saying that these are not Nandi awards but Nandamuri awards.
