Speculation grew on Tollywood’s great actor NTR who even set a trend in national politics by sweeping to power with in 9 months of starting TDP in Andhra Pradesh will be given Bharata Ratna this year. When AP CM Chandra Babu Naidu and TDP demanded Bharata Ratna for NTR many felt that his name would be recommended for Center and many thought that his closeness with PM Modi will get coveted Bharata Ratna for the great star.
However much to the shock of all, AP govt didnot recommend NTR’s name for Bharata Ratna. Now it bought back memories of how Chandra Babu Naidu didnot show interest when the previous NDA Govt decided to give Bharat Ratna to NTR. Chandra Babu rejected NDA move at that time for the reason that if NTR was given Bharatratna, his wife Lakshmi Parvathi will be receiving it from the President which he hates.
Excluding NTR’s name Babu recommended Murali Mohan for Padmabhushan,Galla Ramachandra Naidu for Padmasri, Bapu for Padmabhushan awards.
