Dasari Narayana Rao sons fight over property
The late director's sons Taraka Prabhu and Arun Kumar are at the centre of a property dispute
All is not well between the sons of Telugu cinema doyen and late filmmaker Dasari Narayana Rao. The late director's sons Taraka Prabhu and Arun Kumar are at the centre of a property dispute after the former accused the latter of barging into his house located at Road No 46, Jubilee Hills, allegedly in an inebriated condition. Refuting the claims, Arun Kumar, in his media interaction on Saturday, stated that he is also the co-owner of the house, which was allegedly in possession of his brother.
"Being one of Dasari Narayana Rao's heirs and much like my brother and sister, I too have every right to claim ownership of the house. All my photo identity documents like Aadhar, Pan, and Passport have the same proof of identity with this house as my address of correspondence. I went to my house to collect a document delivered by a courier service provider and I was not in an inebriated condition at all. It's joint property and I can go to my house anytime," says Arun Kumar, who jumped over the gate of his Jubilee Hills house to get inside.
The Venky Mama actor maintains that he is ready to open a dialogue with his brother to settle the issue. "I am ready to talk to my brother. However, he has been battling depression for a while now and he has been lodging several complaints against me without my fault. I hope he overcomes it soon. I think he is facing some problem because of it," alleges Arun.
He also denies seeking help from the industry bigwigs like Chiranjeevi, Mohan Babu, Murali Mohan, and C Kalyan. "I don't know why Chiranjeevi and a few others names were dragged into this issue. I am neither a prince nor my brother. So why should we involve industry people into a property dispute between brothers? If my brother wants it to be solved legally, I am fine with it. Also, I don't have any objection if someone comes forward with a resolution to our problem, amicably," avers Arun.
Further, Arun demanded his brother submit his father's will and other documents to the court to claim the ownership of the house. "Currently, the court has issued an injunction order and none of us can sell the house. If he claims that he or his daughter to be the owner of the property, he should submit my father's will and every other document to the court and resolve the issue legally, without creating any ruckus" he signed off.
