Dasari’s Controversial Comments on Puri Jagannadh
Popular director, producer Dasari Narayana Rao fired on director Puri Jagannadh at the opening function of Sampoornesh Babu’s Kobbari Matta movie. While characterization of heroes was glorious and respectable earlier, Puri Jagannadh spoiled it all with his ‘Idiot’ movie, said Dasari. Puri, right from Idiot, projected heroes in all his films as useless, roadside romeos, those who disregard their parents and those who stalk behind girls, commenting them with obscene dialogues, said Dasari. With the hit of Idiot, many other directors started following this trend of degrading heroes’ charcters in films, which is not good for the society, fired Dasari. The ace director said that Puri Jagannadh’s films are well-received only by a certain section of audiences, whereas a good film should be received and liked by all sections of audiences. He suggested that new heroes like Sampoornesh Babu and upcoming directors should change this practice and do films that attract all kinds of audiences to theatres. Dasari said that he believes Kobbari Matta will entertain all types of audiences.
Director Dasari Narayana Rao openly firing on a popular director like Puri Jagannah has stunned most people who attended the opening function.
