Initial years and distribution CompanyEdit

Raju and his brothers started film distribution in the early 90s and partnered with Venkata Lakshmi Films. In 1996, they opened a new office with the name Sri Harshita Films.[1] Most of the films that they distributed were unsuccessful at the box-office and they incurred heavy losses leading them to shut the company.[1] After few more years studying the market, they started Sri Venkateswara Film Distributors in 1999.[2] They chose to distribute films in the Nizam area of Telangana. The first three films distributed were Oke Okkadu, Nuvvu Vastavani and Sakhi. They went on to distribute many more movies including Kushi, Murari and Nuvvu Naaku Nachav.[2]

Production company and successEdit

After distributing films for four years, Raju established Sri Venkateswara Creations in 2003. The first movie that was made under the banner was Dil, directed by V. V. Vinayak.[1] In 2004, they made Arya under the direction of Sukumar. In 2005, they made another successful film Bhadra, under the direction of Boyapati Srinu.[2] They continued distributing films including Nuvvu Naaku Nachav, Murari, Khushi, Aadi, Athadu, Chatrapati and Pokiri.[2] In 2006, they produced Bommarillu under the direction of Bhaskar.[2]
