Filmmaker Dasari Narayana Rao is known for making critical remarks against leading heroes. Especially, he has targeted Mega family heroes quite a few times in the past. Now, he is at it again. The veteran director of 150 films has taken a dig indirectly at the makers of Pawan Kalyan's Attarintiki Daredi, Ram Charan Teja's Yevadu for affecting small-budget films by delaying their release uncertainly.
Dasari Narayana Rao recently attended the audio launch of Srikanth's Mondodu as the chief guest. Addressing the music release function, the filmmaker, who has been an advocate for small-budget filmmakers in recent years, condemned the big budget producers' habit of changing the release dates of their movies.
"With big ticket films making a habit of changing their release dates, it is difficult for producers of small-budget films to get space to release their films. They (small-budget producers) are clueless about how to plan their film's release. It is a sad state of affairs. I never thought such a situation would arise in my lifetime! Deccan Chronicle quotes Dasari as saying.
Producer's BVSN Prasad's Attarintiki Daaredi and Dil Raju's Yevadu are big ticket movies, which are made with more than Rs 35 crores each. They are much-hyped and highly-anticipated movies of the year. But their releases have been deferred due to the prevailing political situation in the state.
