‘Darsakaratna’ Dasarai Narayana Rao directed more than 150 films and today i.e. May 4th is the birth anniversary of the legendary Tollywood cine personality. Marking this occasion, Megastar Chiranjeevi appealed the Government to honor late Dasari with Padma Award.
Posting a note on Twitter, Megastar remembered the magnanimous director, actor, and producer’s services to the Telugu cinema. ‘Apart from being a great director, Dasari remained a torchbearer to the entire film industry addressing its issues leading from the forefront. He always remains a role model in that aspect.
But, It is sad that he didn’t get the much deserved recognition from the Government. So, it will be a great honor for the entire Telugu Film Industry if he is conferred with Padma Award posthumously at least.’ appealed Chiranjeevi.
Besides, the ‘Acharya’ also added hashtags #RememberingALegend #DrDasari and #PadmaForDrDasari to make this appeal reach the Government to propose the great director’s name for the upcoming Padma Awards.
