Mahesh Babu, who is on a lean patch with his successive failures, wants to break his losing streak and has pinned his high hopes on Dookudu. Like his previous movies, the actor has successfully generated a huge hype around the movie through its audio, trailer and posters of the Telugu film. Whereas, Nagarjuna has not publicised his Rajanna to that extent, which might help the former's movie to have edge over the latter's project.
On the other end, Nagarjuna's recent movies have turned out to be money spinners. His Gaganam is one of the few hits of the 2011. Having success behind him, the actor is confident that he can deliver yet another hit in the current year. Though Rajanna has not drawn a huge attention, one cannot underestimate the movie as the movie is attached to SS Rajamouli. The Magadheera director's father S Vijayendra Prasad, who is known as a master in story telling, is making his directorial comeback with this film and the action part is taken care by his son.
However, Dookudu is directed by Srinu Vytla and it is hitting the screens on September 23. Whereas, Rajanna will release on September 30.
