Dil Raju is one of the most successful producers of Telugu cinema. He worked with almost all the leading actors of Tollywood. With all the top actors occupied with back to back films, Dil Raju is finding it tough to produce a big-ticket film. Though he announced Icon with Allu Arjun in the direction of Sriram Venu, the film got shelved due to undisclosed reasons. Dil Raju is keen on working with Mahesh Babu again and Vamshi Paidipally is busy penning the script.
The recent developments revealed that Mahesh Babu is keen on working with Prashanth Neel rather than Vamshi Paidipally which is leaving Dil Raju worried. He is keen on announcing a big-budget project at any cost next year but he is left with no options. NTR may go with Trivikram and Prabhas is already lined up with many projects. Allu Arjun is working with Sukumar and will take a year to complete the project. Dil Raju managed to rope in Pawan Kalyan for Pink remake. But, he will have to co-produce the film with Boney Kapoor and Pawan Kalyan, Trivikram will take a lion’s share.
96 remake and Raj Tarun’s Iddari Lokam Okate are ready for release. Though Dil Raju planned a series of small budget films, none of them could hit the floors. Dil Raju is currently facing a tough time and we have to wait to see if he announces a biggie soon.
