Tollywood Director Gunasekhar will be awarded the KV Reddy Award 2015 for his contribution towards Telugu Cinema here in Prasad's Labs on 13th December at 6 PM. Dasari Narayana Rao, Akkineni Ramesh Prasad, Ashwini Dutt, Manisharma, Paruchuri Brothers and Tanikella Bharani will attend the function as chief guests.
Gunasekhar, who made 'Rudhramadevi' possible, directed the film only because of his interest and initiative towards the history. This film was made on a huge budget of 80Cr and was produced by Gunasekhar himself. After having a successful debut film with 'Laati' in 1992, Guna went on to make super hits like Sogasu Chooda Tharama, Bala Ramayanam, Choodalani Vundi, Manoharam, Okkadu and Arjun. Since 2004 to 2015, whatever films did Guna made, were rejected by the Telugu audience.
He, who thought of changing his style of film-making, did the first 3D Stereoscopic Historical Film 'Rudhramadevi.' This film was received well all across the south and earned him much fame than any of his previous films gave. For his immense contribution towards Telugu Cinema, Gunasekhar will receive the 2015 KV Reddy Award along with his family.
