In recent times, Dil Raju has been having a dream run at the box-office. His films Shatamanam Bhavati and Nenu Local have done exceedingly well at the box-office along with some earlier releases too.
The only disappointment for him of late has been Om Namo Venkatesaya. Raju bought the Nizam rights to the movie for a non-refundable price of around Rs 8 crore.
The movie has turned out to be a disaster at the box-office and Raju would be losing heavily on this deal. However, he has Duvvada Jagannatham in the pipeline and in all probability will be recouping his losses with interest.
On the personal side, Raju is a devotee of Sri Venkateswara Swamy and even had a temple of the Lord constructed in his native town.
