# Where did the story of Dasara come from?
‘Dasara’ is composed by Shrikant Odela. Nani played the character of Dharni in the film. He is a laborer working in a coal mine. Srikanth’s father drove a dumper truck in the coal mine for 40 years. He observed this entire process closely. Wrote this whole experience again in my own way. In an interview given to Film Companion, he told that Srikanth’s narration skills were weak. Still he kept listening to the story. Because he felt that this story was not written sitting in a room. Composed in full detail.
But writing a story and making a film on it are two very different things. Nani wanted to check whether Srikanth would be able to bring this story from the pages to the screen. That’s why he chose two scenes from the script of ‘Dasra’. Gave it to Srikkanth. Said to shoot it with any actor for the least money and bring it. Along with this, clip the background music of any film. So that he gets a basic idea of what kind of film he wants to make. Srikanth accepted the challenge.
Nani was going to the airport. Srikkanth also joined them. The scene that was shot was shown to Nani on the way. Nani felt that Srikanth has prepared a good scene in the minimum budget. Then he decided that he would do Srikant Odela’s film.
