Director Srinu Vaitla’s Dookudu turned out to be a blockbuster for Mahesh Babu and it was also the first film that earned $1 million in the US. Producer Anil Sunkara who helmed Dookudu reunited the team for Aagadu.
While the pre-release buzz was huge, the film bombed at the box office in India. But, distributors in the US didn’t face losses as the film grossed $500k from the premiere shows and made them happy.
Now, Anil Sunkara has teamed up with Mahesh Babu for Sarileru Neekevvaru
, directed by Anil Ravipudi who worked as an assistant director in Aagadu. Anil took to Twitter to give Sarileru Neekevvaru the hype it needed.
He wrote, “In spite of bad reviews, Aadgadu became a profitable venture for overseas buyers. It was the first movie to cross 500K in premiers. This time we should have Aagadu hype, with Dookudu content. What do u say Superfans?
