Producer Dil Raju is toying with the idea of entering into politics. If TRS sources are to be believed, Telangana Chief Minister KCR has made a big offer to producer Dil Raju and invited him into TRS. Floored with Dil Raju's recent film Fidaa that is set against Nizamabad backdrop and predominantly shot in Banswada, KCR said to have impressed with Raju and his love for Telangana.
Reportedly, KCR evinced interest to field Dil Raju in the 2019 general elections from TRS for Lok Sabha. Dil Raju said to have positively responded to KCR's proposal. If buzz is to be believed, Dil Raju would either contest from Zahirabad Parliament constituency or Nizamabad Parliament constituency.
Raju hails from Nizamabad district. He is one of the most successful distributor, exhibitor and producer who made his own mark. Belongs to Reddy community, Raju has always maintained good relations with all sections of people in his native district.
Several producers in the past have made foray into politics. Leading producers like Rama Naidu have represented Lok Sabha from TDP. It needs to be seen whether Dil Raju join the bandwagon or not. It is learnt that nothing has been confirmed yet.
