Prince Mahesh Babu's then industry hit movie 'Pokiri' was released on 28th April, 2006. Power Star Pawan Kalyan's 'Bangaram' was released on 3rd May, 2006. If 'Pokiri' turned out to be an industry hit at the box office, 'Bangaram' stood as an average grosser at the box office. Long back, Pawan Kalyan's 'Thammudu' and Mahesh Babu's 'Rajakumarudu' were also released in a short gap. 'Thammudu' was a blockbuster then while 'Rajakumarudu' proved to be a decent hit at the box office.
Mega Power Star Ram Charan's 'Naayak' is releasing on 9th of January, 2013. On the other hand, Victory Venkatesh and Mahesh Babu's multi-starrer 'Seethamma Vaakitlo Sirimalle Chettu'. Now, some of the supporters of Mahesh Babu are saying that Mahesh Babu will give a shock to Ram Charan this time, as he did it to Pawan's movie at the time of the releases of 'Pokiri' and 'Bangaram'.
