Dasari Narayana Rao has been referred as Mestri in the Telugu Film Industry as he is always there for the people, especially the artists, technicians & producers, in need. Few people try to misuse his name in the name of showing respect or gratitude to the Legendary Filmmaker. Dasari is in no mood to tolerate if anyone uses his name without taking prior permission from him.
Darsakaratna issued a paper statement to clarify: "On September 5th, Andhra Jyothi published a paper ad in its Cinema page saying - 'Jonnalagadda Srinivasa Rao has been producing the film 'Gnanabali' with the blessings of Shri Dasari Narayana Rao'. I have no connection what-so-ever with this news. Please, Don't use my name that way!".Since the past few months, Dasari is busy with the pre-production work of his high-budget flick featuring Pawan Kalyan. As per the recent buzz, Kishore Pardasani (Gopala Gopala fame) would wield the megaphone and Trivikram Srinivas is going to provide story, screenplay & dialogues for the project.
