I am here in the industry for more than 45 years, out of these I have missed one decade to politics, when I came back to the film industry, I was sceptical how people will receive me.

Chiranjeevi also extended his gratitude to the Government and the film industry for the support and an experience worth a lifetime after receiving the award. ‘I bow my head and thank each and every one of you. If anybody has the idea of coming to cinema industry, please do come, this is a corruption-less profession, you will have no guilt conscience, if you have talent, you can project it, and you will grow sky-high’, he said.
