Come April 2018, audiences should gear up for one of the biggest box-office clashes, as it has been confirmed that Mahesh Babu’s Bharath Ane Nenu and Allu Arjun’s Naa Peru Surya will release on April 27, 2018. Earlier this week, the makers of Mahesh’s film announced the release date with a poster and on Saturday, producer Bunny Vas confirmed Naa Peru Surya will release as planned earlier on April 27 and that there won’t any postponement in the date.
In Bharath Ane Nenu, Mahesh plays a Chief Minister and he’s paired with Kiara Advani, who makes her Telugu debut. Mahesh, whose last four out of five films bombed at the box-office, is really looking forward to the release of Bharath Ane Nenu, which marks his reunion with Srimanthudu director Koratala Siva. He has been shooting almost non-stop for the project since last month. He had to take a small break during the release of Spyder; however, the debacle of the film quickly made him rejoin the sets of this project to divert his mind from the failure.
In Naa Peru Surya, Allu Arjun will be seen playing a military officer. The project, being directed by Vakkantham Vamsi is tipped to be an action drama with a patriotic angle and will feature Arjun in a new avatar. To attain a certain physique for the role, Arjun trained exclusively with a US-based trained for over a month before commencing work on the project. Popular writer Vakkantham Vamsi, known for his contribution to hit films such as Kick and Temper, makes his directorial debut with the project. Anu Emmanuel plays the leading lady. While Rajeev Ravi cranks the camera, the film has music by Vishal-Shekhar.
