Dil Raju is a popular producer in Telugu cinema and is often regarded as the Man with Midas touch as he has a strong sense of judgment over a movie’s fate at the box office. His debut movie as a producer was “Dil” and since then, it has become the prefix to his name. Dil Raju’s famous movies include “Arya,” “Dil,” “Munna,” “Bommarillu,” “Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu,” “Brindavanam” and the recent super hit “Supreme.”
Getting into the details, sensational producer Dil Raju has given an exclusive interview to a News Channel recently. Here are some questions and answers.
Q: Too many Heroes from the same family?
A: If there is (a) background, fans would only come to watch the first movie or shows on day one. But, that doesn’t guarantee success. Ultimately, one has to prove themselves with talent and hard work. For example, see Bunny! When he was launched with “Gangotri,” even me too commented, ‘Vedentra Hero!’ Look the way how he moulded himself from “Arya” and today he is one of the big stars in the Industry. I am witnessing the amount of hard work he has been putting and how much he changed while shooting for “DJ – Duvvada Jagannadham.”
Q: Why Charan isn’t as successful as Bunny?
A: Ram Charan is hardworking and talented. It’s just a matter of time.
Q: Who is your favorite hero?
A: Pawan Kalyan is my favorite. The kind of films he has done till “Kushi” has given me a huge kick.
Q: Why didn’t you work with Pawan Kalyan so far?
A: I took two subjects to Pawan Kalyan but somehow things didn’t fall in place. But, I keep approaching him.
Dil Raju has two upcoming projects in the near future. One is Sharwand’s “Shatamanam Bhavati” and the other is Allu Arjun‘s “Duvvada Jagannadham.” One of these movies would be Dil Raju’s 25th film as a producer under his Sri Venkateswara Creations banner.
