Producer Dil Raju over the years has carved a niche for himself through a number of successful films. Both as a producer as well as one of the leading distributors in the Nizam area, he’s been a part of some of the biggest blockbusters in the Telugu film industry. However, the recent developments over Vakeel Saab have left Dil Raju disappointed.
It’s being reported that Raju is not happy with the way Vakeel Saab is performing especially in Nizam in its first week. Pawan Kalyan’s fan following and his track record in Nizam are well known to all. His Jalsa, back in those days entered into the top 2 highest grosser in Nizam along with Pokiri. Similarly, his 2012 superhit Gabbar Singh also was the top 2 highest grosser in Nizam along with Magadheera for quite some time. We all know the kind of sensation his Attarintiki Daredi created particularly in Nizam. The movie turned out to be Industry Hit and raked in the highest ever Nizam collections ever. A positive talk on Power Star’s movie is enough to have records tumbling. But, that’s not the case this time.
Coming to Vakeel Saab, it generated great hype even before its release as it was Powerstar’s comeback film. It was expected to be a major success both critically as well as financially. Vakeel Saab proved its hype and turned out to be the biggest opener in Indian cinema post lockdown. The film grossed 32crores + share in Telugu States on an opening day. However, after the initial euphoria, the collections seem to be tumbling down. According to our sources, the movie is expected to have a share of 21-22 crores in the first week for Nizam region The movie has failed to make it even to the Top 5 Nizam grossers in the first week. This has made Dil Raju a worried man who is keeping a close eye on how collections unfold.
