Superstar Mahesh Babu is all set to thank his fans for making “Srimanthudu” a stupendous hit that has collected nearly 70 crores ‘share’ by now. After thanking them through media, through his success meets, he’s now getting ready to hold a “Thank You” meet on August 20th at Shilpakala Vedika. That’s a good idea but it might foil the chances of others.
Both “Kick 2” and “Rudramadevi” are the two films that are waiting for a soft slot at box office where they can escape of the pressure of Baahubali and Srimanthudu easily. For that reason, they have waited for nearly two months and zeroed on August 21st and September 4th respectively. After the release, Baahubali has anyway minted 500 crores and then stopped its promotions. But even after grabbing 100+ crores gross, Srimanthudu is not stopping his publicity streak. If he holds a Thank You meet on August 20th, that is going to shadow the August 21st releasing Kick 2. Because if Mahesh holds a meet a day before, surely he’s going to grab all the attention. Every media house will give exclusive coverage about the event and people will also stay busy discussing about it. There is no way Kick 2 could emerge tall from the herd if Srimanthudu still continues his publicity.
Coming to Rudramadevi, already promotions of this 70 crore budgeted epic drama are not at all impressive. There is no aggressive ways of taking the film to crowds by roping in the lead stars of the film including Anushka, Rana and Bunny. Though our Size Zero hottie is trying her best, that’s not enough. And for the little promotions what they are doing, Srimanthudu is a menace because after wrapping Hyderabad Thank You meet, this village-adopting chap is coming to Vizag and Vijayawada too. We have to see how these other upcoming biggies will tackle Mahesh and his meetings.
