For a couple of months Darsakaratna Dasari Narayana Rao went into a mute mode when it comes to venting fumes on happenings in film industry. However he is back to his attacking game again, and this time he targeted quite a different stuff with some regular masala.
Every year AP government honours film personalities with awards like ‘Raghupathi Venkaiah Naidu’ award and BN Reddy award. Dasari stated that government has now removed the word ‘Naidu’ from Raghupathi Venkaiah Naidu award. He questioned why Naidu is chopped from that legendary’s name when the tag ‘Reddy’ is still associated with BN Reddy and KV Reddy.
‘We cannot chop out Raju from Alluri Seetharama Raju and Singh from Bhagat Singh. Though they stand for caste, some names shouldn’t be touched in the name of caste-free society. So is the case with Raghupati Venkaih Naidu’, said Dasari. However people cannot understand who got targeted with this blasting of our veteran director. Is he accusing that Kapu community big-wigs are not taking a step forward to talk about this?
Continuing his attack, Dasari added that North Indian critics, media and celebs always look down South celebs, and advised Telugu heroes to stop dreaming about B-town. He asked them to focus on native language first. Looks like Dasari watched Ram Charan’s Thoofan last night!
