Announcing this at a Press Meet organized in city today, Mr. Moorthy Sreenivasulu, M.D. & Publisher, Southscope said, “We want to honour the originality and excellence of filmmakers, actors, technicians and artists across the four South Indian film industries viz. Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.” Various Film Stars Charmme, Navadeep and Deeksha Seth also spoke on the occasion and disclosed the nominations from Telugu film industry.
The theme of the awards is ‘South is One’. Elaborating on the same, he said that breaking cultural barriers is something the South Indian film industry can teach the world. Be it films made in Tamil that have become blockbusters in Telugu and Kannada regions, or Telugu actors whose star value has transcended regional borders, or Malayalam cinema that has caught the imagination of movie-goers across all four states, or the lilting Kannada film music that has caught the ear of listeners irrespective of the language they speak – the power of oneness, is all-pervading in South India Cinema. A phenomenon unique only to it, Southscope’s latest edition of awards salutes this spirit.
