Prince Mahesh Babu's Sarileru Neekevvaru is being canned as an action packed family entertainer. The film is slated for release during Sankranthi season, 2020.
Grapevine is that the film has strong influence of Athadu film starred by Mahesh Babu under Trivirkam's direction.
In Athadu, Mahesh Babu unexpectedly enters a family as Parthu, who is accidentally killed before. Thereafter, Mahesh Babu's collaboration with the family members of Parthu is sensibly executed by the director embedding good dosage of comedy in it.
If at all ongoing reports are anything to go by, Sarileru Neekevvaru's story also falls on the same lines of Athadu. Here Mahesh Babu enters a family in the place of person named Satyadev. However, film unit members are tight lipped about the story of the movie. As such, we need to wait until the release of the film whether the rumours are right or not.
Sarileru Neekevvaru is being helmed by Anil Ravipudi. Rashmika Mandanna is the female lead.
