MS Raju is one of the renowned senior producers of Tollywood. He started his career as a producer with Venkatesh starrer Shatruvu (1990) and provided the basic plot of the film. He gave hatrick Blockbusters twice and became one of the most promising producers. He produced Okkadu, Varsham and Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana in a row that became career best hits of Mahesh Babu, Prabhas and Siddharth at that time. However, it ended his success streak and he couldn’t recreate the magic of those films. He later turned director and made Vaana and Tuneega Tuneega which failed at box-office.
According to reports, MS Raju is turning director once again with his own script. The yet untitled project is produced by debutantes Satish Babu and Puneeth. The official first look of the film will be unveiled in January. On a side note, MS Raju’s son Sumanth Ashwin is an actor in Telugu cinema, who made his debut with Tuneega Tuneega.
