Looks like Mahesh Babu starrer Srimanthudu has taken a back seat to avoid clash with star studded film Baahubali. This news has shocked Mahesh Babu fans who were eager to catch a glimpse of the star’s film by next month itself.
Nonetheless the filmmakers have announced that audio launch of the film will be done on July 18. Srimanthudu which was earlier slated to hit theatres on July 17 will now be releasing 2 days after Mahesh Babu‘s birthday that is on August 07.
The decision comes keeping the distributors’ safety in mind after Baahubali makers confirmed that their film will release on July 10. With only a week’s gap between the two films, distributors were concerned about the risky position and did not want to take any chances.
Well practically, it is quite a smart decision made by them as S.S. Rajamouli’s Baahubali is grand compared to Srimanthudu’s relatively simple story. Srimanthudu was originally slated for a May release but was postponed to July due to technical reasons and now the film’s release date has again been shifted to August.
