“Okka sari nenu commit ayithe na mata nene vinanu” – this is an extremely popular dialogue of Superstar Mahesh Babu from the film Pokiri. And ever since he uttered that dialogue he has taken that line very seriously too. It can be seen with the actor’s stubborn stance on release dates.
Once the actor locks a release date, the film has to arrive on that said date hell hath the fury. We have seen that with all his films post Pokiri. But for once the actor has to change his stance. He promised that his new film Srimanthudu would be arriving on July 17 but now that has been delayed by few weeks to August 7.
The reason for this postponement is well known and many were anticipating it from the beginning. However going by the past experiences they weren’t out in open in a commanding way. Srimanthudu will now arrive on August 7, two days before the birthday of Superstar.
