The release of the intro video of `Sarileru Neekevvaru’ (which translates to `No one is on par with you’) is significant for three reasons. One it is hero Mahesh Babu’s birthday and it is only apt that the makers of his Sankranti 2020 release put the first look out.
Two, the storyline sets Mahesh as an army officer and a week ahead of Independence day, it is just the right moment to capture. Three, the movie is set in Kashmir and given that the troubled state is in the news right now, the makers would have thought it is a good time to capture eyeballs.
Directed by Anil Ravipudi with music by Devi Sri Prasad, the movie pairs Rashmika Mandanna of `Dear Comrade’ fame opposite Mahesh. His last outing `Maharshi’ was a hit.
