Dasari Narayana Rao never hesitates to speak his mind even though his words stir controversies. There are several such instances in the past and now it happened once again in 41st anniversary event of his film, ‘Thatha – Manavadu’. He made a scathing attack on the working model of current industry and the producers reigning the cinema right now.
“Financiers, cashiers, mediators, and brokers are the current day producers and they have zero knowledge in the film making process. They are just date managers who look for dates of a star hero and earn crores by making hero-centric films… These producers are ready to eat any kind of grass for acquiring the dates….”, said the veteran directors. He even added that current and coming generations will only known NTR as Junior NTR and all our history is forgotten. Well veterans like Dasari are due for a hit for more than 15 years. What options do the producers have?
