Talk Of The Town: Upasana, The Hero!

Talk Of The Town: Upasana, The Hero!

By directly shooting out a pointer to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that his ways of ignoring South Film Industry's representation at the Indian Film Industry meet have pained her, Upasana Kamineni became a talking point now.

In the last two days, Telugu industry folks haven't debated whether PM Modi's meet with Bollywood folks in the name of "Indian Cinema Creators" is going to yield any result or just a PR exercise before the run up to Haryana and Maharashtra elections. But they are talking about the way mega daughter in law Upasana Kamineni stood up to the PM to demand what is due for us.

Even after making India's biggest motion picture like Baahubali, and having a real pan-India star Prabhas whose films could run throughout the country unlike a Salman Khan or Shahrukh Khan who are restricted only to Hindi hinterlands, the Telugu film industry doesn't get enough recognition which is proven by PM Modi again. And if people like Upasana raise their voice, one day it will be heard for sure.

Also, at a time when the likes of superstar Pawan Kalyan, Mahesh, Jr NTR, Ram Charan and Allu Arjun are silent on this, stalwart directors like Rajamouli, Trivikram, Sukumar, Krish and other prominent people are mum, it's great of Upasana to raise her voice against the injustice being meted.
