King Akkineni Nagarjuna is currently working in the movie ‘Manmadhudu 2’. This film starring Rakul Preet Singh as the heroine, is set be released in the first week of August. Despite knowing that ‘Sahoo’ starring Prabhas is releasing on August 15, Nagarjuna decided to release the film a week earlier. He is not scared.
This entire month will witness release of several movies. ‘Oh Baby’ starring Samantha was released on Friday. ‘iSmart Shankar’ is scheduled to be release on July 17, ‘Dear Comrade’ on July 25 and ‘Ranarangam’, ‘Rakshasudu’ and ‘Guna 369’ on August 2. ‘Manamadhudu’ will hit the screen on August 9, ‘Saaho’ on August 15 and ‘Gang Leader’ on August 31. ‘Valmiki’ will be released in the first week of September. Thus a series of medium range movies are queued up.
Nagarjuna had earlier planned to release ‘Manamadhudu’ in July. Later he thought it would be better to release the movie on August 9. Nag thought that if he misses August, he will not get another date and hence he decided to release it on August 9 at any cost.
