Kurnool-based short filmmaker and director Deepak Reddy won the Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival Award in the Best Short Film category (second runner-up) for his short film ‘Manasanamaha’ in Mumbai on Sunday night. The movie is about a young man who muses on the nature of love, recounting three relationships from his past.

The film festival organised by a trust run by grandson of the father of Indian Cinema Dadasaheb Phalke is considered as one of the most prestigious ones after the national awards.

The short film ‘Manasanamaha’ has also been shortlisted for Oscar-2022 from India in the Best Live Acting Short Film category. 

Incidentally, at the same film festival, Allu Arjun-starrer ‘Pushpa-The Rise’ in Telugu won the ‘Film of The Year’ award.
