After a gap of nearly two years, it was Dil Raju’s masterful planning that helped Ravi Teja sail through at box office and make a decent comeback even with an average film, ‘Raja The Great’. It is heard the Mass Maharaja is taking the help of the ace filmmaker for his next release too.
Makers of Ravi Teja’s “Touch Chesi Chudu” had earlier thought of releasing the film for Sankranthi 2018, but they ultimately decided to push the release to February. Buzz in film circles is that it was Dil Raju who advised Ravi Teja to opt out of the highly competitive Sankranthi season.
Earlier, Dil Raju applied the same strategy for “Raja The Great”. He pushed the release from competitive Dasara season to Diwali and reaped the benefits. Having seen how effectively Dil Raju can release films even in un-season, Ravi Teja has now reportedly handed over the responsibility of giving a smooth and safe release for Touch Chesi Chudu to Dil Raju in the wake of the February month also getting fully crowded.
As per reports, Dil Raju has already started booking theatres for Touch Chesi Chudu and all the buyers of the film are in touch with him, since he would be the decision maker regarding when to release the film. With Raju taking his film under his wings, a relieved Ravi Teja has started his new project, to be directed by Kalyan Krishna.
A few months ago, Dil Raju had taken the responsibility of Sai Dharam Tej’s “Jawaan” and released it in December after reportedly enforcing multiple postponements. He however couldn’t save the film from becoming a failure, going by trade reports. Can Dil Raju succeed in helping Ravi Teja this time?
