Dil Raju is known for his bond with his directors and his belief in their ability despite success and failure.
He expressed great confidence in Satish Vegnesna when no one believed in him after Dongala Bandi and that paid off with Shatamanam Bhavathi. But their next film, Srinivasa Kalyanam turned out to be an overconfident fare and failed at the box office.
The producer seems to have lost faith in the director whom he called his favourite prior to the release of the film. The director is aggressively looking for other producers and he met Kalyanram, recently, it seems. After Harish Shankar, he is the man who lost the confidence of the maker and is actively seeking other production houses.
