Dil Raju is a producer not just by chance, he had done the needed homework before he ventured into making cinema. Without having a background, the former film distributor collaborated with his cousin brothers Sirish & Laxman to start Sri Venkateshwara Creations. A branded production house now, it was an empire erupted by Dil Raju himself.
Raju had his camp of directors whose potentiality he knew very well. With many new directors coming into light over the last decade from his camp, Raju emerged as a successful producer with the audience as well as the distributors.
His first movie, Dil was a safe commercial. Post that Raju experimented every time with a new director and gave ample opportunities to many.
A director with brains as we refer to him now was first picked by Dil Raju for Arya. Standing strong as one of the best directors in the present times, Sukumar has established himself properly.
Touted as a director known for his commercial aspects, Boyapati kick started his career with Badhra. After that he has been working rigorously with all the biggies.
Though his debut was not a big one, his later movies under the same banner, Brindavanam and Yevadu made him a successful director. With Oopiri coming up next, he looks pretty stable.
Being one the able directors who looks technically sound and neat, debuted with Bommarillu and gained a momentum with Parugu. Post that he has not seen a major hit in his career so far. His latest Bangalore Naatkal also seems to be an average grosser.
Debuted with Kotha Bangaru Lokam and he was yet another talent dug out by Dil Raju. With SVSC being a big multi-starrer, he did earn good marks with the family audiences. Now Brahmotsavam is waiting and we are pretty excited about it.
Debuted with Oh My Friend, Venu Sriram couldn’t perform well on a larger front. Though the movie carried some great elements, it didn’t do well. A movie with Ravi Teja was under talks, but no trace about it.
Vasu debuted with Josh. Known as a backbone of the production house, Vasu has been with the production house since the Dil. Providing his support to every director who debuted from Dil Raju’s camp, Vasu is still awaiting his major break.
