Mahesh Babu’s huge action entertainer ‘Aagadu’, which was directed by super director Srinu Vaitla on 14 Reels Entertainment banner and presented by G Ramesh Babu, is ready to hit the screens worldwide on 19th of September. Tamanna played the female lead role and Sruthi Hasan did a special number. Ram Achanta, Gopichand Achanta and Anil Sunkara are the producers. On the eve of film’s release, producers held press meet.
How is ‘Aagadu’ going to be?
It’s an out and out action entertainer. Each and every frame in the film is very new and fresh. The film won’t have any resemblances of past police stories. Mahesh Babu played a powerful cop. Tamanna played a key role and Sruthi Haasan sizzled in a special number. Brahmanadam will enter the film in second half and Rajendra Prasad’s character will be very emotional. Altogether, it will be like a full meal.
