Babu's Srimanthudu has been pushed to August
7 from July 17, on the request of Baahubali makers. Making
the news official, Srimanthudu team called for a press
Talking to the media men, director Koratala
Siva clarified many speculations around the project. Remember
the shelved project of Ram Charan and Koratala Siva?
Reports were rife that Koratala Siva got a nod from Mahesh Babu
by narrating the story, which was supposed to be Ram Charan's. They
have also added that the same story was rejected by Jr NTR before Mahesh Babu
"The story I've prepared for Mahesh Babu garu's
Srimanthudu is different from the film I'm supposed to
work wtih Charan garu. That film and this film are total contrast
to each other. There is no truth in rumors that I've narrated same
story to Mahesh and got approved", the directed clarified.
Hope this clears the air among fan groups and gossip mongers.
The director also said that Srimanthudu is coming out as a
complete family entertainer and was all praises for Mahesh's acting
