There were reports about Mahesh Babu’s next with Koratala gearing up for Sankranthi 2018 release. With Pawan Kalyan’s film with Trivikram scheduled for release on Jan 10, 2018, it looked like there would be a clash of the titans at the Sankranthi box office.
However, latest reports indicate that Mahesh’s next Bharath Ane Nenu release has been pushed to March end.
The film is a high budget political drama that has a stellar star cast. It is not easy to get the dates of all those busy character artists in bulk to pull off marathon schedules.
Although Koratala has bounded script on hands and has done extensive pre production work, it is near impossible to complete the film by Sankranthi without any compromises.
So the makers of Bharath Ane Nenu pushed the film to early summer release which is a good season for a high budget film.
Also it will help them to avoid the Sankranthi rush as well as the potential threat from Shankar’s Robo 2.0 that may affect the long run of Sankranthi releases.
Release date of Bharath Ane Nenu will be made official in a couple of days.
