Profile: Dasari Narayana Rao, the 'Star Director'!

Born in Palakollu on 4 May 1942, Dasari had keen passion for acting right from childhood. It was his interest in theatre which drew him to cinema. He became a writer and, with the encouragement of his producer K Raghava, turned into a director with 'Thatha Manavadu', considered an experiment because comedian Raja Babu was its hero, while the grandpa's role was played by SV Ranga Rao. Notably, he wielded the megaphone just five years after entering the industry.
