After watching the first half of 'Dasara', a lot of audience got confused as they couldn't find out who the hero in this story was. Nani and Deekshith Shetty challenged each other during the first half of the movie and one can confidently say that the latter has made a superb debut in Tollywood with 'Dasara'.
He got a very solid role in this film. He was seen as Nani's best friend Suri in 'Dasara' and he had a lot of scope to perform. Deekshith delivered big time with her performance and there were times when he dominated Nani as well. Looking at his screen presence and the scenes he did, a few might have wondered whether the hero is Nani or Deekshith.
It is in the second half that Nani takes over but the entire first half belonged to Suri character and Deekshith Shetty made full use of the role he got. A lot of people on social media started a discussion about hiring a well known Telugu actor in this role as it would have left an even bigger impact. A lot of people are claiming that Deekshith did 100% justice to the role and he was perfect in it.
Maybe Srikanth Odela would have considered young Telugu heroes for this role but they did not show much interest. Usually, those who win the love of the heroine becomes the hero and it is Suri who gets Vennela in 'Dasara'. This shows that Deekshith was given a solid role and the actor gave a performance that is on par with Nani and Keerthy Suresh in this movie.
