Superstar Mahesh Babu has once again proved that he is the pioneer of Tollywood. By scoring back to back blockbusters, Mahesh is re-writing his own records. After achieving two consecutive hits like Bharat Ane Nenu and Maharshi, the actor has scored a hat-trick with his latest outing Sarileru Neekevvaru. This time the win is much bigger as the film is now the third-highest grosser after the Baahubali series.
Thus, Sarileru Neekevvaru has become the non-Baahubali industry hit of Tollywood. Directed by Anil Ravipudi, this film featured Rashmika Mandanna as the female lead. Vijaya Shanti, Rajendra Prasad, and Prakash Raj played the other important roles in it. Mahesh's impeccable acting, comic timing, the punch lines, and the music played major roles in the film's success. Despite facing tough competition from Allu Arjun's Ala...Vaikunthapurramuloo, this film stood tall at the box-office.
It is still running with housefuls at many centers, even after two weeks of its release. That proves the box-office stamina of Mahesh Babu. Meanwhile, on the flip side, the makers of Ala...Vaikunthapurramuloo is also claiming that their film is an industry hit. The audiences are now getting confused about which is the bigger hit. Anyways, that doesn't matter as both the success helped the industry to start the year on a big note.
