After being presented the B. Nagi Reddy Puraskaram at a function in the city recently, producer Dil Raju said, “The mindset of the filmstars is changing.” He claimed that heroes such as NTR and Prabhas worked in family- entertainers like Brindavanam and Mr Perfect respectively to attempt something different.
“Even Mahesh and Venkatesh have agreed to do Seetamma Vakitloo, since it’s a wholesome family-entertainer,” he added. Bigwigs like ANR, Ramanaidu and Balakrishna presented Dil Raju with a shawl and cheque. “Nagireddy and Chakrapani are legends and are known for making clean entertainers and even Dil Raju is following their footsteps,” said ANR. Even Balakrishna and Ramanaidu recalled their association with the Nagi Reddy family and praised Dil Raju. “It’s a memorable moment in my life,” Dil Raju said.
