Andhra Pradesh Government surprised all by announcing the Nandi Awards at the time everybody forgot them. Telugu Film Inudustry is not in AP government purview now. The awards were conferred to the 4-5 year old movies.. so there is no much excitement like before. Tollywood celebrities.. common public are not responding on these awards. There is no discussion on these awards in the social media also.
Whenever Nandi Awards announced.. there will be discussions whether awards conferred to the eligible persons or not. Comparisons will be made with other actors and technicians.

Best actor award winners Prabhas.. Nani, Best director award winner Rajamouli.. and several others have reached next level in the last few years. Moreover the awards were conferred late. Among all the winners only person who might get excited.. He is Dayaa Kodavaganti. He has won the Best Director award for 2013. This name is the most surprising in the list.
