With Sarileru Neekevvaru, Mahesh Babu seems to have attracted Tamil audience as well. The film had a wide release in Tamil Nadu with shows as early as 8 AM in the city, which is a rare event considering that there is Rajinikanth’s film that has already occupied the theatres in large numbers.

Mahesh Babu called Mani Ratnam’s Nayakan starring Kamal Haasan and Saranya Ponvannan his favourite film. He said that he loves the film so much that he revisits it every three to four months once. Sarileru Neekevvaru is receiving a lot of appreciation from fans belonging to the Telugu speaking states.
