Director turned actor Devi Prasad in the show 'Open Talk with Anji' said, he has had passion for acting since childhood and entered Tollywood blindly with no direction. He said he hails from Guntur district. Sharing about his initial days, Devi Prasad said he was the only crazy co-director who was given the highest remuneration. He also shared about his losing chances initially after becoming a director. Responding over the recent controversies, Devi condemned blaming the whole industry in the name of casting couch. Giving clarity over taking non-native heroines, he said there are no such heroines in Telugu comparatively.
