Also, the makers have announced that the film will have its audio launch function on July 18. This news surely disappointed Super fans but then the practicalities and the safety of the distributors had led to this change in the release date, informed a source.
Initially, Mahesh babu took to twitter and stated that the film is releasing on July 17, "July 17 it is ! With all ur love n blessings it will be another memorable day in my career :)"
Apparently, after Baahubali release was locked on July 10, Mahesh Babu and his team had to rethink of their decision. Just a week gap between these two biggies had turned in to big headache for buyers and distributors.
Hence, Srimanthudu had to take back seat for everyone's good since it is not possible for Baahubali to change its release date as they have already started promoting the film in Hindi and all other languages.
Well! now that the ground is clear for Rajamouli's magnus opus Baahubali, we got to wait and see what wonders the film would do at the box office.
