Chinna release on 30th of March
Dasari, as usual, erred this time too. Not long ago, he announced that he would release Chinna on 16th of February 2001, just two days before the Premabhishekam release date (18th February). And due the turn of events caused by the massive success of Narasimha Naidu, Dasari is forced to postpone the release of Chinna. Narasimha Naidu is earning the title of movie-eater as average films and above average films are flopping at Box office as they appears minuscule in front of the gigantic Narasimha Naidu. Dasari is doing a role of bus driver and is not missing the opportunity to have a song pictured on him, which tutors the youth of AP not to burn busses during turbulent times. This film is supposed to be released in Srilanka too.
