Ace producer Dil Raju has fired on Tollywood media for peddling worthless news about him regarding the postponement of Nikhil Siddharth’s latest film Karthikeya 2.
During the success meet of Karthikeya 2 held in Hyderabad on Tuesday, Dil Raju clarified that he and the producers of Karthikeya 2 mutually agreed to change the release date of the film. Karthikeya 2 was initially scheduled for release on July 22nd but was later to pushed to August to avoid a clash with Naga Chaitanya’s Thank You.
As Dil Raju is the producer of Thank You, numerous stories surfaced in Telugu media stating that Karthikeya 2 was postponed due to a shortage of theatres. Before the release of Karthikeya 2, Nikhil also mentioned the hurdles they faced due to the lack of theatres and how they were pressured to defer the release date.
Now, Dil Raju expressed displeasure over the media houses for their enthusiasm in tarnishing his image. He appealed not to write rumours for the sake of subscribers and clicks. He stated that no one in the industry wishes to create hurdles for others. Dil Raju said he never tries to harm anyone in the industry.
Karthikeya 2 turned out to be a blockbuster in Telugu states. The film is running successfully everywhere with packed houses.
