Beginning the meeting, leading actor Chiranjeevi said “I was unable to attend the funeral of Dasari as I was not in the country. I would regret it for my life. He used to ask me about the box-office performance of my film ‘Khaidi No 150’, I would never forget his concern.

I could spend time with him on his birthday on May 4 and personally handed over the Allu Ramalingaiah award to him. He relentlessly fought for the welfare of cine workers and they have lost a guardian,” says the actor, while AP Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao adds “Dasari has served the industry in various capacities like writer, producer, director and he is truly a one man army,’.
