It seems International Film Festival of India is once again insulting Tollywood. Everyone remember that previous year Natasimha Balakrishna was the chief guest at the closing in ceremony of International Film Festival of India at Goa.
However this year the organisers didnot approach any Tollywood star for the guest list. T-town bigwigs from the beginning have been always wary of IFFI officials who ill treat Telugu film personalities and deny them due respect they deserve and give more prominence to Bollywood stars.
A source says “IFFI is mostly a Bollywood centric and they can’t look beyond for celebrities”. The source who felt that organisers seems to have mended their ways when they invited Balakrishna last year is shocked with the organisers returning back to their old ways.
The source adds “Its back square one this time, since till date, no big Telugu star has been approached ” In that case, most of the Telugu film producers and directors, could stay off or IFFI has other plans. Do you think T-won stars should boycott, until IFFI organisers, change their mindset?
