Kaloji Narayana Rao was a famous Indian poet who won Padma Vibhushan in 1992. This great man was also a freedom fighter, an anti-fascist and a political activist. He received the title of popular poet. Every year on the occasion of his birthday, all eminent authors of the Telugu film industry are honored, the Kaloji Narayana Rao Award.
This year, the president of Telugu Television Writers' Association, D. Suresh, declared that this prestigious award would be presented to Vandemataram Srinivas, music director, singer, director and filmmaker. In 2016, this award was declared in honor of the work of the writer Chandrabose. But for some reason, the event could not be organized.
Now the association has decided to congratulate Chandrabose and Vandemataram Srinivas on the same days, at an event to be held in a week.
This major event is organized by Telangana TV Development Forum, Bharat Cultural Academy and Telugu TV Writers Association.
Vandemataram Srinivas had already received two film awards and five Nandi awards for his outstanding contribution to the South cinema.
