Producer Anil Sunkara assures that his film Sarileru Neekevvaru will be Mahesh Babu’s biggest release in his career.
Mahesh Babu in Sarileru Neekevvaru
Mahesh Babu is upbeat about his upcoming film Sarileru Neekevvaru, directed by Anil Ravipudi. The family drama film is jointly produced by Anil Sunkara, Dil Raju and Mahesh Babu himself. As the film received a U/A certificate from the censor board, the makers are now finalising the release date.
Earlier, it was reported that the film will hit the theatres on January 11. Since Allu Arjun’s Ala Vaikuntapurramloo is arriving on January 12, the makers of Sarileru Neekevvaru are confused whether to release the film on January 10 or January 11.
In a recent interview to a Telugu entertainment portal, producer Anil Sunkara said that they are working out on finalising the film’s release date and that they would make the announcement soon. He further added that Sarileru Neekevvaru will be Mahesh Babu’s biggest film in his career.
He said, “The last-minute formalities are being looked at as of now and the exact figure will be revealed in a few days. As of now, it is Mahesh’s biggest release in his entire career.”
Speaking about the film’s title, Anil explained, “Sarileru Neekevvaru is not defining a person, it is for the entire soldiers who stand for the country and save us from the enemies. Mahesh plays a soldier in the film and what he does after coming to Rayalaseema is the whole film about. Once you see the film, you will understand the justification automatically.”
For the last couple of weeks, reports are doing the rounds that the train sequence in the film will be the highlight of Sarileru Neekevvaru. “The train episode is going to be the highlight of the film and will be there for half an hour in the first half. The comedy generated through this episode will leave everyone in splits in the theatres,” he concluded.
Sarileru Neekevvaru is a family drama featuring Mahesh Babu, Rashmika Mandanna, Prakash Raj, Vijayshanti, Satyadev, Naresh and Rajendra Prasad in prominent roles.
