Senior Telugu actor Kota Srinivasa Rao is known not only for his versatile characters but also for his frank talk on issues that plague film industry.
For a long time, the senior actor has been raising his voice against giving importance to actors of other languages over Telugu actors. In one of his recent interviews, Kota took a dig at the makers of ‘Janatha Garage’ stating that he hasn’t yet heard anyone praising the lead actor (NTR) of the film.
‘Everyone is praising Mohanlal’s performance. If you rope in such a talented actor, how much a Telugu actor should perform to get noticed in comparison? Makers are only thinking of their films but not about the Telugu actors. It’s good to have compassion for all the languages but not at the cost of our own language,’ added Kota.
