Natural Star Nani is currently on cloud nine with the success of his latest release Lucifer. He is also working with Vikram K Kumar’s upcoming directorial venture Gang Leader. On Friday, the makers have locked 30th August as its release date. It means Nani is challenging King Nagarjuna. Film Industry buzz is that actually, Nagarjuna is looking forward to releasing his upcoming film, Manmadhudu 2 on August 30th. But suddenly, hero Nani has come into the scene as his makers of Gang Leader has other day announced that the film will hit cinemas on the very same date. And that led Akkineni camp into thinking, a source from trade says.
Nagarjuna was not expecting this from Nani. Now, he cannot compete with Nani’s ‘Gangleader’ as there are no holidays during that period. Two films competing on the same date would spoil the opening numbers. So, Nagarjuna will have to search for another date. Though Nagarjuna has not made an official announcement regarding the release of Manmadhudu 2 till date. Now we have to wait and see whether the makers of Manmadhudu 2 will change the release plan or not.
Earlier Nani and Nagarjuna have worked together for Devadas, directed by Sriram Adittya, but the movie was ended up commercially flop at the box office.
Under the direction of Rahul Ravindran, Nag has recently wrapped the Portugal schedule of Manmadhudu 2. The film features Rakul Preet in the lead, while Samantha and Keerthy Suresh are appearing in guest roles.
