At a condolence meeting organized by the film fraternity, Narayana Murthy gave a call to Telugu film industry to unite and mount pressure on the central government and ensure that Dasari is conferred with Dada Saheb Phalke Award.

He said, The likes of Vidya Balan have been conferred the Padma Shri but Tollywood legends like Savitri and SVR were ignored. While Dasari is an all-rounder who acted in films, directed 150+ films, produced 38 films which highlighted social issues.
