'Masooda' has reportedly recovered its investment already. The film was released last Friday and within three days of its release, it fetched profits for Dil Raju, who released it in the Telugu States after acquiring it from producer Rahul Yadav Nakka of Swadharm Entertainment.
Speaking at a presser on Monday, Dil Raju revealed that he didn't favour the running time of nearly 160 minutes at first. "When I asked Rahul to trim it, he stuck to his guns. His convictions have borne fruit today," the producer said.
The supremo of Sri Venkateswara Creations said, using the cricketing analogy, that Rahul is a risk-taker and goes for big hits.
Rahul Yadav, who has previously made 'Malli Raava' and 'Agent Sai Srinivas Athreya', has secured a hat-trick hit. He said, "We have made an honest film. Besides spooky elements, we have also delivered the message that you don't need a reason to help someone. 'Masooda' is a genuine horror-drama."
