Jr NTR’s Janatha Garage bagged multiple awards at the recently concluded IIFA Utsvam including Best Actor Award for Tarak. The film was a blockbuster and made a lot of headlines after it opened to packed screens. Janatha Garage is the highest grosser in NTR’s career till date. After accepting the award for Best Actor, Tarak gave a speech which bedazzled everyone including the hosts Rana Daggubati and Nani.
He said that the award is not just his and belongs to all the actors nominated in that category. NTR heaped praises on Super Star Mahesh for his skills and versatility. Post receiving the award, Tarak was back on the stage and this time to give away the award for the Best Film in Kannada. And it went to Kirik Party. Rakshith Shetty collected the award and what came next was totally unexpected. NTR gave a small speech in Kannada and said that the state of Karnataka and Kannada language is very close to his heart because his mother hails Kundapura. Everyone present there applauded to this and the moment was thunderous. NTR’s mother Shalini hails from Kundapura and had moved to Hyderabad many years ago when she was young. Speaking about it the star added, “My mother is from Kundapura. Just like my grandfather NTR, my mother family too is large. I visit Kundapur. Karnataka and Kannada are an important part of my life,”.
Fans of the young tiger would be pleased to learn about this. Who knows, we might get to see him act in Kannada since he has already made his singing debut here?
