Pellichoopulu movie came as a fresh breeze and created history. Though made on a very short budget, it became a huge hit and earned not just money but also appreciation for its makers. While Tharun Bhascker Dhaassyam directed the movie, Raj Kandukuri produced it.
Now this small but sweet movie has earned a rare honour. It’s producer Raj Kandukuri has been selected for B Nagi Reddy Memorial Award for the year 2016.
B Nagi Reddy’s son B Venkatarami Reddy has instituted this award to fete producers who make movies with family values. Late B Nagi Reddy has made landmark movies in Telugu film history like Missamma, Pathalabhairavi, Maya Bazaar and others.
Producer BVSN Prasad for Atharintiki Daredi, Dil Raju for Mr Perfect movie, among others were presented with B Nagi Reddy memorial award in the past.
