Sri Venkateswara Creations (Telugu: శ్రీ వెంకటేశ్వర క్రియేషన్స్) is an Indian film production company established by Dil Raju, an Indian film producer. The company is based in Hyderabad.[1] The company was established in 2003. Dil Raju has produced several Telugu films under this company.[2] The company also has a subsidiary distribution company called Sri Venkateswara Film Distributors, Under which several films were distributed all over Andhra Pradesh and Overseas.[3] Many successful Telugu movies were produced by this company and they include blockbuster hits like Arya, Bommarillu, Kotha Bangaru Lokam and Mr. Perfect etc.[4] The company also has another subsidiary film production company called Matinee Entertainments under which movies like Maro Charitra and Gaganam were produced.[5] Dil Raju's cousin Sirish and long-time friend Lakshman act as co-producers.

Initial years and distribution Company[edit]

Dil Raju and his brothers started film distribution in early 90's and partnered with Venkata Lakshmi Films. They distributed few films during that time which gave them bitter experiences and made them rethink. But Dil Raju was persistent on continuing his career in film distribution and they opened a new office with the name Sri Harshita Films in 1996.[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 and focus on their automobile business.[1] After few more years studying the market and making important contacts in the Telugu film industry, they started a new distribution company called Sri Venkateswara Film Distributors in 1999.[2] They chose to distribute films in the in Nizam area of Andhra Pradesh. The first three films (Oke Okkadu, Nuvvu Vastavani and Sakhi) that they distributed went on to become blockbusters and earning them profits. They went on to distribute many more blockbuster movies like Kushi, Murari and Nuvvu Naaku Nachav.[2]

Production company and success[edit]

After distributing films for four years, Dil Raju established Sri Venkateswara Creations in 2003. The first movie that was made under the banner was Dil. Directed by V. V. Vinayak, the movie became a big success at the box-office.[1] In 2004, they made Arya under the direction of Sukumar which also became a blockbuster hit and gaining them good reputation in the industry. In 2005, they made another successful film Bhadra, under the direction of Boyapati Srinu.[2] Meanwhile they still continued distributing films and were very successful at it by distributing films such as Nuvvu Naaku Nachav, Murari, Khushi, Aadi, Athadu, Chatrapati and Pokiri etc.[2] They distributed the films they produced as well. In 2006, they produced Bommarillu under the direction of Bhaskar . The film was a big success at the box office and made them one of the top producers in Tollywood.[2] They produced 15 movies and have another three in production till date.
