Top Stars managing awards: Dasari

Darsakaratna Dasari Narayana Rao has once again made controversial statements, but this time it is about the sanctity of the awards. The senior director alleged that awards, both at state and central level can be managed.

"It all started with private awards, where the organizers gave away awards to Top Stars in the Industry to cash in on their presence for attracting sponsors and TRPs. Now, this bad custom has spread to state and national awards. Sadly the prestigious awards like Padma Sri, Padma Bhushan, Padma Vibhushan and even Dada Saheb Phalke can be obtained now through lobbying. There were instances that some people got benefited, though they weren't eligible for it," said Dasari.

Surprisingly, It was Dasari who attended many private awards functions in the past and also showered praises on the winners and the organisers. Dasari, earlier, claimed that his film 'Parama Veera Chakra' would bag National Awards and the lead star Balakrishna would be given Best Actor award. However, the super-dud flick wasn't even considered for any of the awards, forget about grabbing them. This might be the reason for Dasari's outburst!
