Kannada and Telugu film awards were given out the first day of the event. The red carpet was set ablaze by the stunning stars that included Rakul Preet Singh, Shriya Saran, Regina Cassandra, Rana Daggubati , Akhil Akkineni and the likes.
Rakul Preet Singh was dressed in a Yigal Azrouel gown for the first day award night. She pulled off a no-fuss look in the black dress with sleek straight hair and earrings. That night, she took back home the Best Actress award in Telugu for Nannaku Prematho. For the second day, Rakul wore an embroidered Marchesa gown. While the gown and the lady both looked pretty, the look wasn’t as loved as day 1.
