However Netizens are questioning the award received by Actor Srikanth who was last seen in a Tamil movie “Nambiar”. In the later part of his career, his films failed to achieve commercial success, which led him to venture into the Telugu and Malayalam film industries. He is credited as Sriram in Telugu films.
