Dil Raju who is the producer of DJ - Duvvada Jagannadam, did not have any losses due to the film. But he did the common mistake of claiming his film to be a hit and also showed figures that went on to become controversial. This created bad blood in the industry and created a dent in his image.
Usually, Dil Raju has remained clean and has had a good image in the industry, but his efforts to project his 25th film as a hit boomeranged.
Well, that is now an old story. After DJ, Dil Raju has had a hit in Fidaa. The film has been appreciated by the critics and audiences alike.
Fidaa was rated a clean entertainer that also promoted the beauty of Telangana and Telangana dialect. So, in all, Dil Raju is back in reckoning.
However, industry insiders feel Dil Raju has to take the loss of DJ in his stride and stop trying to make a hit out of it. Also, since he makes many films in a year, it is all part of the game, they feel.
