I directed him 27 times: Dasari


Yesterday Night on the stage of Premam audio function Darsakaratna Dasari Narayana Rao said, “Today is ANR garu’s birthday.  The relationship I and ANR garu had is well-known.  It was a 50-year-long one.  I directed him 27 times.  There was no other director who made these many films with him.  The record ‘Premabhishekam’ created is insuperable.  If it so remains for another 20 years, it will have been unbeaten over a century’s time.  Akkineni family is c/o address for love stories.  Twenty-two of the 27 movies were love stories.  That legacy continued with Nagarjuna.  ‘Majnu’ has been the biggest hit of his career.  Chaitu is continuing with it.  I wish that continues with Akhil as well.  Chaitu is no hero to me.  He is like the last guy in your neighborhood.  There is magic in his smile.  Aa nuvvutho ne padesadu oka heroine ni.  I don’t know what ‘maya’ that heroine did to him.  With ‘YMC’ and ‘100% Love’, Chaitu proved himself.  Love is eternal.  Whatever may be the industry, love stories have unmatched histories.
