Producer Dil Raju, who considers number eleven lucky, says he likes to take certain sentiments seriously. Therefore, he is releasing Junior NTR-starrer Telugu action-drama Ramayya Vasthavayya October 11. His last production Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu starring Mahesh Babu and Venkatesh released Jan 11 this year and become the one of the all time highest grosser Telugu movies.
Talking to IANS, Dil Raju said, "Some sentiments need to be taken seriously because they might work in your favour. I consider number eleven very lucky for me as my last film Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, which also released on eleventh of a different month, went on to be a blockbuster. I'm releasing Ramayya Vasthavayya on the same day for the same reason."
Other reason why Raju was keen on releasing Ramayya Vasthavayya on Friday is director Harish Shankar's last release Gabbar Singh released on May 11, 2012. The producer added, "I don't think it's a coincidence. I strongly believe in this sentiment, and therefore, convinced Harish and NTR on the date. They didn't have any problem with it."
Earlier, Ramayya Vasthavayya was scheduled to release Thursday on the occasion of Navratri as two of Raju's earlier films, namely Kotha Bangaru Lokam and Brindavanam, released during the festive season and raked in moolah. Ramayya Vasthavayya also stars Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Shruti Hassan in important roles.
