Dr. Akkineni Nageshwara Rao and Dr. D Rama Naidu will get a tribute at the IFFI 2013 Goa. The committee has arranged for the films of and by Dada Saheb Phalke awardees who are alive in a special panorama. ANR and Rama Naidu being the two legends from Telugu in the category, their films are being screened.
ANR's 1953 classic 'Devadasu' and Rama Naidu's love drama of 1971 'Prem nagar', which also had ANR as the lead incidentally, are the two films that will be featuring in the special screening section. This will come as a pleasant surprise for the Telugu industry who are otherwise sulking for not getting a single film shortlisted for the Panorama.
Three of K Vishwanath's movies will also be screened in the 'Fine Musicals Of Indian Cinema' section. The movies are 'Sankarabharanam', 'Sagara Sangamam' and 'Sapta Padi'.
