Well known director P Sheshadri who has many National Awards to his credit is the talk of the town off late. Sheshadri's letter to the Government regarding the best villain awards has garnered much criticism from Darshan's fans and has been the much discussed topic in the social networking sites.
During the Karnataka State Award function at Mysore, Darshan had requested Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and other ministers to give a best villain award from next year for which the CM immediately accepted. Recently Sheshadri had written a letter to the Government regarding the State Awards function. Sheshadri had listed the problems that occurred in the function and requested that the Government should be more careful in the future in organising such functions.
Sheshadri in his letter had also suggested that it is not proper to give a best villain award as there is a supporting actor award and actors who play negative characters are also given awards in such category. There are many instances earlier, that actors portraying negative roles getting supporting awards and so Sheshadri had requested the Government not to increase the award.
This statement has specially garnered a lot of criticism from the public and that too from Darshan's fans. It has been the much discussed topic in the social networking sites. Let's see what turn this incident takes in the future.
