Thatha Manavadu would be completing 40 years in March this year.
The film was veteran director Dasari Narayana Rao`s maiden film that was released on March 23, 1972. On the occasion of completing 40 years in the industry, Dasari will commence his 151st directorial venture.
Although his 150th film, Parama Veera Chakra, with Balakrishna playing the lead role, didn`t set cash registers ring, Dasari is undeterred by its result. He is planning his 151st movie on a much grander scale and the film would be formally launched on March 23rd, 2013 in Hyderabad.
