Veteran actor-filmmaker Dasari Narayana Rao has once again made headlines with his striking comments on the star families in Tollywood. Speaking at the audio launch event of Swati-Naveen Chandra's upcoming horror flick, Tripura, Dasari first praised Naveen Chandra for making a mark in Tollywood without any filmy background but just with his hard work and talent. The veteran then spewed fire on star families saying that at least 10 actors are entering films from star families these days. It is very difficult for outsiders to get a chance and even if they get a chance, it is very difficult to prove their talent. It's not easy for outsiders in the industry.
Dasari then praised filmmakers like Krish, Rajamouli and Shekar Kammula for making successful films even without top stars. "A director can create a hundred stars, but a star cannot create a director or a star," said Dasari. The also reiterated his earlier comments of small films should release on festivals and showed the successes of Raju Gari Gadhi and Kanche as examples
