Vijaya Medical & Educational Trust will celebrate the centenary birth year of pioneer of the Indian Film Industry Shri. B. Nagi Reddi, this year. The centenary celebration organization committee will be headed by Shri. B. Venugopal Reddy and Shri B. Venkatarama Reddi.
To honor late B Nagi Reddi’s commitment to the film industry, it has been decided to initiate an award for the Tamil and Telugu films. A press note states: “Since Vijaya Productions, the movie production company founded by Shri B. Nagi Reddi is famous for producing movies which are wholesome family entertainer, the trust has decided to institute an award in this category and give to production houses which have produced the movies year after year starting 2012. Since majority of Vijaya productions were tamil-telugu bilingual and Shri B. Nagi Reddi held a pole position here for a period spanning many decades, the Trust has decided to institute an award in these languages.”
