Mahesh Babu is one of the biggest superstars in Tollywood. His every film is an event film and not just fans but everyone waits for his films to release with bated breath. Mahesh’s upcoming film Sarileru Neekevvaru which is carrying tremendous buzz is releasing as Sankranthi special. The expectations are humongous from the audience as well as trade.
Mahesh and Sankranthi have a history that dates back to 2001. Takkari Donga was the first film of Mahesh that released on Sankranthi in 2001. After that Okkadu, Seetamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu and 1 Nenokkadine released on Sankranthi. Out of these Okkadu and SVSC turned out to be hits whereas the other two were dismal flops. So Sankaranthi has been a mixed bag for Mahesh as far as box office success is concerned.
We have to wait and see if Sarileru joins the list of Mahesh’s hit movie or flop movies on Sankranthi. Sarileru Neekevvaru is directed by Anil Ravipudi and has Rashmika Mandanna as the lead opposite Mahesh Babu.
