Veteran director Dr Dasari Narayana Rao is known for his hard-hitting remarkes against people in the industry in the past, and today, he was at it again.

Dasari Narayana Rao's attacking comments came when he was addressing a press meet held at the Andhra Pradesh Film Chamber of Commerce (APFCC). The filmmaker said that he has sacrificed a lot to bring up many directors and actors in the film industry and they are criticizing and challenging him without respect. He added that he would write a book to expose the real history of those stars.
Meanwhile, Dasari Narayana Rao also attacked the deteriorating standards in the present day direction and screenplay. The producer said that there is no creativity in screenplay in recent days. And most of the recent films have been inspired or a blatant copy of Rajinikanth's Bhasha. He launched an indirect attack against Naayak, which is releasing as Sankranthi treat, saying, "This is applicable even to some films releasing for Sankranthi 2013."
However, it should be recalled here that there was war of words between Dasari Narayana Rao and Ram Charan. Earlier, the filmmaker had said that young actors did not even know the basics of acting and they danced like club dancers. This had not gone well with Ram Charan Teja, who had taken dig at him on Twitter page. He had posted, "So called grt directors 1s are confined to only speeches and lectures on stage nowadays sad they cant move anyting but their mouth (sic)."
