Dil Raju hits purple patch in 2017


Midas touch producer Dil Raju is in a happy space at present. His latest release Fidaa, starring Varun Tej and Sai Pallavi, is running with packed houses in all areas. The film got unanimous thumbs up from critics and audience alike. Surely, the film will attain super hit status by the end of the first weekend and will emerge as the biggest hit in Varun Tej’s career.

Fidaa is the fourth release of 2017 for Dil Raju’s Sri Venkateswara Creations. Earlier this year, Shatamanam Bhavati, which released for Sankranthi amidst tough competition, generated solid revenues and emerged as one of the notable hits in the first half of 2017. Dil Raju followed it up with a commercial entertainer Nenu Local, starring Nani in the lead, which had a strong run at the box office ensuring profits for all parties involved.

Dil Raju’s third release of the year, Duvvada Jagannadham which released in June managed only a lukewarm response at the box office. But, the strong pre release business helped him bag good profits.

Now, Fidaa’s sensational openings and the glowing word of mouth hint that Dil Raju is on track for one more hit this year. Needless to say, the star producer having a dream year with back to back money spinning movies.

He will have two more releases this year in the form of Ravi Teja’s Raja The Great which is slated to hit the screens in October and Nani’s MCA which will release in November.
