Producers Council reminds Dil Raju of his previous remark

Dil Raju

A few years ago, ace producer Dil Raju spoke out against dubbed films being released during important festival seasons such as Sankranthi and Dasara. To keep the Telugu film industry afloat, he believes that straight Telugu films should outnumber dubbed films in theatres.

The Telugu Film Producers Council is now reminding him of his previous statement as the senior producer prepares to release ‘Vaarasudu,’ starring Thalapathy Vijay, for Sankranthi. Although the producers claim it is bilingual, it is actually a dubbed film. In a recent interview with a Tamil channel, director Vamshi Paidipally stated that the film is “proper Tamil paadam.”

Dil Raju’s and Vamshi Paidipally’s statements are both haunting them.

In Nizam and Vizag, the council reminds him to give more theatres to straight releases like Balakrishna’s “Veera Simha Reddy” and “Waltair Veerayya.” Dil Raju is a major player in film distribution in these two markets.
