Srimanthudu Press Meet
The most talked about and highly awaited movie ‘Srimanthudu’ starring Superstar Mahesh Babu which is being directed by Koratala Siva, is at final stages of shooting. Yerneni Naveen, Yalamanchili Ravi Shankar and CV Mohan are jointly producing the film under MB Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. and Mythri Movie Makers banners. Gorgeous actress Shruti Haasan is paired opposite Mahesh Babu in this movie. Devi Sri Prasad composed the music. Actor Jagapathi Babu plays the role of Prince’s father. The film unit says that the audio of Srimanthudu will be launched on July 18, and the film on August 17. On this occasion, the film unit has arranged press meet on Thursday in Hyderabad.
Speaking at the press meet, Yerneni Naveen said, “This is the first meet related to ‘Srimanthuu’. At present the film is at final stages of shooting and the entire shooting part will be completed by June 17. We need one month for postproduction works and hence we are releasing the audio on July 18. We are planning to release the film worldwide on August 7, in a grand way. At first we have announced that the film will release in theatres across the globe on July 17. But, we have postponed the release date by a couple of weeks to avoid its clash with the huge budget film like ‘Baahubali’. We don’t want our film to lock horns with big-budget film like ‘Baahubali’ and therefore we went back with mutual understanding. Meanwhile, Mahesh Babu’s birthday is on August 9, and before that the theatres will be buzzing and it will a real feast for Mahesh’s fans.”
On this occasion, director Koratala Siva informs us, “Entire shooting will be wrapped up by June 27 and after that we will start post-production works. We have decided to bring ‘Srimanthudu’ to the audience on August 7. ‘Srimanthudu’ and ‘Baahubali’, both the films are much-hyped and highly anticipated and so we don’t want to club the release dates. We may get enough time for post-production works also. From the stating of the film itself, Mahesh Babu is taking enough care in production matters. Teaser has got tremendous response. I’m sure the film will be a real feast for Mahesh’s fans. The concept of the story is about adopting a village. Incidentally, it was happened in Mahesh’s real life also. But, I’ve narrated him this story a year before and the same thought was in his mind and it became big plus to the film. The film will have an extraordinary family drama. Devi Sri Prasad, Madhi and Ramajogayya Sasrty were involved in this project and they will give good output. The film will be very grand with senior actors like Jagapathi Babu and Rajendra Prasad. The film will bring festive cheer to the fans of Krishna and Mahesh Babu.”
The cast of the film includes: Jagapathi Babu, Rajendra Prasad, Shruthi Haasan, Ali, Subbaraju, Vennela Kishore, Sivaji Raja, Kadambari, Mukesh Rishi, Sampath, Harish, Edida Sriram, Tulasi, Sukanya, Sitaram and Sana and some others.
