Raj Tarun who has had a dream run by scoring hits with his first three movies suffered a setback with Seetamma Andalu Ramayya Sitralu. He is still one of the most sought after young heroes in Tollywood today. Initially, Raj Tarun has been roped in as the replacement for Sai Dharam Tej in writer-turned-director Satish Vegesna’s Shatamanam Bhavati.
Apparently, Dil Raju, who is producing the film, has given clarity on why he thought the movie needs Raj Tarun but not Sai Dharam Tej. The producer opined that the film would fetch unwanted attention if it has Sai Dharam Tej on board.
Raju, who is also producing Supreme with Sai Dharam Tej right now, feels the actor would be recognized more like a star post the release of the film, and thinks that it is a risk to cast him in an experimental subject like Shatamanam Bhavati.
Dil Raju added that the film will be an apt one for Raj Tarun, who is trying to make a place for himself in the industry, and Tej would be past the phase, after Supreme. It apparently shows the producer’s confidence on Supreme as well as on the actor. It is not too long to wait and see how his judgment turns out to be, though.
Meanwhile, Raj Tarun is currently busy with three projects in his kitty. After Supreme film, Sai Dharam Tej’s two films Thikka and Winner have flopped at Box Office. Dil Raju who produced two films for Sai Dharam Tej including Supreme wanted to give back some boost to the mega hero and decided to replace Raj Tarun. Meanwhile, Sai Dharam Tej is busy with his upcoming film Jawan , Mehreen opposite Tej. It is bankrolled by Krishna under Arunachal Creations banner.
