Though Dil Raju had a golden run last year as a producer, he had some bitter experiences as distributor. Films he distributed like ‘Cheliya’, ‘Om Namo Venkatesaaya’ and ‘Spyder’ brought huge losses for this star producer. He had a nightmare with Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Agnyathavaasi’ this year. Raju lost around 15 crores on this film.
Trade experts say that ‘Abbai’ Varun’s ‘Tholi Prema’ is a huge sigh of relief for Dil Raju now. Though it is BVSN Prasad who produced Varun’s flick, Raju bought the entire rights for 18 crores. The positive talk and first day collections made sure that this flick is going to bring profits and easily cross the 25 crores mark.
Though the losses of ‘Agnyathavaasi’ may not get recovered completely, one can say that Varun’s romantic flick is sure to bring smiles on the face of Dil Raju.
