I think, since you say you're using Mac, that you don't need to specify 
the Script=Telugu. It has to do with the font having scripting 
capabilities written into it, so loading the script option only breaks 
that and you don't get scripting.

I think that's what Jonathan has mentioned before in similar cases.
