The sudden demise of legendary Telugu filmmaker Dasari Narayana Rao has come as a big blow to Telugu filmdom, with most celebrities describing his death as an end of an era. With over 150 films as a director to his credit and 50 more as producer, his last directorial outing was the 2014 Telugu flick, Erra Bus, which unfortunately tanked without a trace at the box-office. It wasn’t long ago that he announced he had plans to make a film on the life of late Tamil Nadu chief minister and actor J Jayalalithaa. We have exclusively learnt that Baahubali fame Anushka Shetty was the front-runner for the leading role and apparently Dasari had plans to meet her soon and discuss.
