Chiranjeevi had a sweet-sour relationship with late Dasari Narayana Rao
. Both were relatives. They used to be close and there were times when both of them wouldn't see eye to eye. But during his last days, Dasari had become very close to Chiru.
On the occasion of the 'Lankeshwarudu' director's birth anniversary, Chiranjeevi shared a pic from Dasari's last days and wrote some beautiful lines about the legend. Chiru wrote that Dasari was as generous as Karna, as efficient as Arjuna and enemyless like Dharma Raju. He added that he has been missing Dasari a lot, but he continues to inspire future generations.
