Dil Raju Varisu Vaarasudu Controversy Clarifies His Comments Of Thalapathy Vijay Ajith Kumar

Raju says his remarks were taken out of context

Tollywood producer Dil Raju stirred up a hornet’s nest when he said that Thalapathy Vijay is the number one star in Tamil Nadu. In an interview given to a leading Telugu news channel, Dil Raju spoke about the ongoing Sankranthi theatres’ controversy and said, “This is pure business. Vijay and Ajith’s movies are both releasing for Sankranthi in Tamil Nadu. There are 800 theatres there and each hero would get 400 theatres. Vijay is the number one star in Tamil Nadu and naturally, I would be trying for extra 50 theatres there. It will be the same scenario in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for the Sankranthi films competing.”

These remarks from Dil Raju did not go down well with the fans of Ajit Kumar and other Tamil heroes who have been slamming Dil Raju on various social platforms.

Dil Raju then hastily convened a press meet today, in which, he clarified his remarks. “They’ve taken a 20-second clip from the whole interview and are posting it on social media. But if you look at the whole interview, you’ll find the context to my remarks. I never like to speak ill of a person or demean someone by comparing them to others. My only desire is to provide people with good cinema and entertainment, and I’m never a person to court controversies. It’s my humble request to the media to cover the interview in full,” said Dil Raju.
