The audience size for Telugu films has grown significantly over the past few years, creating an opportunity for ambitious film producers like Dil Raju to expand their footprint across the country. Dil Raju is now funding two landmark films, including one starring Tamil superstar Vijay. He also aims to join the bandwagon of “pan-Indian” filmmakers with these two films.

“After Baahubali 1 and 2, there were a lot of changes in the market. And today, cinema has become truly global. If you have the right content, you can take it wherever you want. For a long time I wanted to venture into the Hindi market and got that entry with Jersey. And I also have HIT remake in Hindi. Both films are ready. We tried to make these Hindi remakes better than what we did in Telugu. I think Jersey is one of the best Hindi movies (that I’ve seen),” he said in an interview with TV5 News.

He is funding upcoming director Shankar, which stars Ram Charan in the lead. Vijay’s upcoming is helmed by Telugu director Vamshi Paidipally. And this crossover combination has already expanded the size and reach of the audience.

“We are shooting Shankar’s film originally in Telugu and planning to dub it in Tamil and Hindi and give it a pan-Indian release. It’s a typical Shankar movie. It’s both sumptuous and rich in content. It’s not just for regional audience, everyone will love it. We have already completed two calendars,” he revealed.

Dil Raju is also very optimistic about his movie with Vijay and Vamshi Paidipally. ” That’s a beautiful story. I thought that was one of the best stories I’ve heard. When Mr. Vijay heard the narration, he told us that he had not heard a story like this for 20 years. Hearing those words from a star hero is a great feeling. Vamshi is still working on the story. We plan to start filming in March,” he said.

“I will have two movies ready to release (next year). I want to release Shankar sir movie for Sankranti and Vijay movie for Deepavali,” he added.
