The Anil Ravipudi directed film marks the return of Vijayashanthi, and will release during Sankranti 2020

The teaser of Mahesh Babu starrer Sarileru Neekevvaru, which was unveiled on Friday evening, showed glimpses of another mainstream entertainer in the offing. In this film directed by Anil Ravipudi, whose F2 ran to packed houses earlier this year, Mahesh plays an army officer. There’s also the strong local connect when the teaser switches to showing him thundering in the backdrop of the Kondareddy buruju (fort) in Kurnool district, rendering ‘punch’ dialogues.

 

The film marks the return of Vijayashanthi, and also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Prakash Raj, Rajendra Prasad and Rao Ramesh, among others. With music by Devi Sri Prasad and cinematography by Rathnavelu, the film is scheduled to release on January 11, 2020.

Earlier this week, a statement from the Active Telugu Film Producers Guild (ATFPG) declared that a meeting with the producers of Sarileru Neekevvaru and Allu Arjun-Trivikram Srinivas film Ala Vaikunthapurramulo helped avoid the box office clash of the films. Both films had earlier announced their release dates as January 11. After intervention by ATFPG, it was decided that Sarileru will arrive on January 11 and Ala... on January 12.
