    Hey cool!! It really feels nice to see the southern star and Bommarillu starred Prakash winning the highest and most respectable recognition of the film world..

    Its just like ‘Doghanchya bhaandnaat tisraycha laabh’ as we say in our regional language.. lol.. :P

    At Last, its the entertainment sector where talent overtakes politics and over-exposed actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have been forgotten.
