A man with golden heart no more!

Dasari Narayana Rao, a reputed film director, actor, writer and former Union minister of state for coal, died on Tuesday after prolonged illness. He is survived by two sons and a daughter. Dasari Narayana Rao celebrated his 75th birthday on May 4 this year.

He has been hospitalized for a while now. He was put on haemo-dialysis after his condition worsened after a gastric ballon surgery was performed about three days ago. His condition turned serious on Tuesday as heavy fluctuations were noticed in his blood pressure and sugar levels.

It may be mentioned that Dasari was admitted to KIMS after he complained of difficulty in breathing. He was later discharged from the hospital. Since then, his health continued to deteriorate.

Dasari was born on May 4, 1942 in Palakollu in West Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. Dasari, who belongs to politically powerful Kapu community in Andhra, entered into active politics in early 2000 through the Congress party.

He was considered to be close to AICC president Sonia Gandhi and was elected to Rajya Sabha. He became the minister of state for coal in Manmohan Singh government during the UPA-II regime.

Dasari Narayana Rao holds the Guinness Book of Records for directing 125 films in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi. He also received two National Film Awards, nine state Nandi awards, and four Filmfare awards.

On his demise, Film70mm extends its deepest condolences to the Dasari Narayana Rao’s family.
