Ace director Dasari Narayana Rao cautioned Manchu Manoj that he is taking too much risk while doing stunts, fights. Talking at the audio launch of Current Theea, Dasari asked Manoj to use "safe" and "simple" techniques rather than relying on risky ones.
Dasari suggested, "Manoj should do various roles in his career. He has completed 10-years in film industry and still he has to go a longway. In my opinion, an actor career takes turn only after 10-years. So, Current Theega is special for Manoj. I'd like to see him in roles like Sardar Paparayudu, Katakala Rudrayya."
Dasari said that Manchu family is close to him. He also said that Lakshmi Manchu is "more" talented among all the Manchus.
