In Sep 1972, a Tamil film featuring Nagesh was dubbed into Telugu and released as “Raaja” to profit from his found popularity in Telugu post Server Sundaram. Maruthi Productions used the title for their second film in the combination of Sobhan & Raghavendra Rao approximately after 4.3 years of the dubbed films’ initial release. I guess this is the shortest time taken by a production house to reuse a title in TFI. The scan below has the first batch release centres of the dubbed film.
