No one ever talked about Superstar Krishna getting any awards until Chiranjeevi and few others got Padma Shree before Krishna.
The actor was awarded Padma Bhushan directly and then Chiranjeevi got it too. Now, Amitabh Bachchan received Dada Saheb Phalke Award and Chiru requested the two state Governments of Telugu speaking states to lobby at central level for Dada Saheb award for our Superstar Krishna.
He asked the Governments to remember that Krishna did not just act and become popular in films but he was also instrumental in bringing Industry from Chennai to Hyderabad, by building a studio.
He also said that Krishna took many risks at the height of his career to bring innovation into Telugu Cinema and such an actor should get Dada Saheb Phalke Award for sure.
He commented that he feels Krishna never got his due when it comes to awards and it is their duty to honor their elders or seniors.
Senior Fans of Superstar Krishna thanked Chiranjeevi for putting up such a demand in front of two Telugu State Governments and they started asking for such an honor to be given to their favourite hero, too.
