Mahesh Babu recently praised Allu Arjun starrer Pushpa: the rise, who called the actor’s performance “stunning, original and sensational.” The film has become one of the biggest hits of 2021 and is also penetrating the Hindi belt.
Last month, Mahesh Babu starrer Sarkaru Vaari Paata the planned release of January 13 postponed. It was intended to make way for SS Rajamouli’s RRR, which would collide with Sarkaru Vaari Paata on the Sankranthi weekend. Rajamouli had also thanked Mahesh Babu for taking the initiative to avoid the clash. However, RRR also eventually had to relocate due to increasing Covid-19 cases across the country.
While Sarkaru Vaari Paata has now booked April 1, 2022 as the new release date, RRR remains undated. Mahesh Babu’s next production venture is Major.
