Dil Raju`s lucky number eleven

Chennai: 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` Oct 11.

"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` (SVSC), 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," Raju said.

SVSC starring Mahesh Babu and D. Venkatesh released Jan 11 this year.

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.

"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," he added.

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 Haasan in important roles.
