The Telangana state government will present a national award every year in the name of NTR to a reputed film personality. The state government has decided to give away State Film Awards from Ugadi festival next year. The state government has stopped distributing film awards after the formation of Telangana. The erstwhile AP government used to give away Nandi awards to best films and actors. The state government will soon change the nomenclature of Nandi awards and present awards from Ugadi, the new Telugu year.
Cinematography minister T Srinivas Yadav held a meeting with officials and film personalities at the Secretariat here on Tuesday and declared that the awards would be given in Telangana.
Speaking to reporters later, the minister said that the state government would give awards to film personalities in 19 categories. NTR National Film Award, Paidi Jayaraj Film Award, Raghupati Venkaiah, Kantarao and Prabhakara Reddy awards would be presented, the minister said.  
The best film award to a film which promotes national integration would be given in the name of Sarojini Naidu.
