Initial years and distribution Company
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. Most of the films that they distributed were unsuccessful at the box-office and they incurred heavy losses leading them to shut the company. After few more years studying the market, they started Sri Venkateswara Film Distributors in 1999. 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.
