Spacing between biggies should be as long as possible these days such that their positioning will not affect film’s collections. Superstar Mahesh Babu’s latest flick ‘Aagadu’ is slated for a September 19 release, but we are hearing reports from trade sources that they are looking at a lone 3 weeks of time rather standing in rat race with other biggies.
In fact, Aagadu was first fixed for October first week release but the date announcement of Ram Charan’s Govindudu Andarivadele affected the plans. As the mega film directed by Krishna Vamsi was fixed for Oct 1st release, Mahesh’s movie got advanced to a couple of weeks. However, change in plans of Rabhasa affected the whole scenario. From Aug 15, Jr NTR moved to Aug 29, and this made Ravi Teja’s â€˜Power’ to shift from Aug 29 to September 5. In between, Naga Chaitanya’s Oka Laila Kosam is also eyeing Sep 5, but sources say they have Sep 12th as another option. In that case Mahesh has only Sep 12 and 26 available or otherwise he should compete with Charan on October 1st. Competing with Charan became negative sentiment for Mahesh’s flicks, as they have seen result twice.
With huge post-production work still pending for Aagadu, and date options not so interesting for trade circuits, a date change is inevitable for the movie, say observers. But, clarity over both Aaagadu and Govindudu Andarivadele release is still at desert as the films are not yet ready. If Govindudu gets delayed by any chance, then Oct 1st will be best bet for Mahesh. So, we have to wait for official confirmation about these two releases.
