The OTTplay Awards and conclave 2022 earned its place as the first of its kind awards event in the country. The pan India awards celebrated a host of OTT films and web shows in the country, that spanned across different languages and genres. OTT films and shows were celebrated for stories and content first, irrespective of language, and a number of OTT releases in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi bagged awards at the event, which was held at Mumbai on September 10, Saturday.

The award for OTT performer of the year was presented by Aishwarya Lekshmi and Kishore. Telugu actor Rajendra Prasad bagged the award for his performance in Senapathi. The actor was all charm as he pulled the leg of host Maniesh Paul. Rajendra addressed Maniesh with a “Aap bhool gaye honge mere ko. Rascal, I will teach you how to behave”, and added “My name is Murugan. Quick Gun Murugan”, leading to cheers across the audience.

The veteran actor went on to say “I am an actor since black and white films. Since 45 years, I am in cinema. Today is special for me. I started from black and white, Quick Gun Murugan, this and that. So many hundreds of Telugu films of mine have been remade into Hindi films. And now such a special day, because all the young directors of Telugu cinema today, they made me jump into OTT platforms.

The world is changing. Cinema is changing. There is no ‘film’ in films, as it has all become digital. There was so much of change, and its so lucky that i was into the change as well” , said Rajendra. The veteran actor also teased that people might get to see Quick Gun Murugan 2 soon as well.
