    All artists are children. They aren't meant to grow up. The moment they start growing they cease to be artists. They start analysing their own work and lose productivity. When the artist is dead all life comes to a standstill. It's his job to give people the will/desire to live. Only he can do it. So it is everyone's responsibility to protect and nurture the Artist. Don't let him be badgered into silence by middleclass morality. What our people should learn is to atleast let him be himself. Democracy has actually made life difficult for artists.

    Rana has always been good at catching up and persuading people around to like and encourage the films. He doesn't have inhibitions like a 'traditional actor'. He is young at age and mind. I have high hopes for him.
    The only con in this video was he addressed only 'sirs' not madams 😉

    See Rana on TEDx expected a lot not this much "disappointment".
    After watching series of TEDx for hours today, noticed RANA D, excited fellow telugu guy and expected a lot. He well detailed and interesting subject about Daggubati family growth & said they contributed and they are the only family in Telugu movie industry. But his talk did not relate with TEDx, 80% of his talk is all about Daggubati family business.
    I am a fan of TEDx, its great stage bringing world to express and share. Very excited to see Rana and got very disappointed by his self promo.
    There are million movie industry problems and issues in country that he could address and stand for.
    He mentioned Bahubali movie very few in the audience reacted, until then rest might be wondering what he is talking about.
