Impressed by its powerful storyline, veteran Telugu filmmaker Dasari Narayana Rao has picked up the distribution rights of forthcoming film Minugurulu, which is slated for release on Jan 24. The Tollywood director said it will be "unfortunate" if audiences do not get to see it. A film featuring 40 visually impaired children, the movie is the story about how these children expose the wrongdoings of their warden in an orphanage.
Talking to IANS, Dasari Narayana Rao said, "When I first watched this film in a private screening a few months back, I decided I should do something from my end to promote it. It has a powerful storyline and wonderful performances by these kids." He added, "I thought the audience would be unfortunate if they don't get to see it. Hence, I decided to distribute it."
The film Minugurulu, directed by debutant Ayodhya Kumar, will be released under Dasari's home banner Siri Media. "The film was completed long back. It's high time that it releases right away before people stop talking about it. Several industry folks have also shared their feedback about the film. We are planning to release it in maximum number of screens in Andhra Pradesh," Dasari said.
