Alongside Mahesh Babu, Sarileru Neekevvaru also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Vijayashanti and Prakash Raj among others. The film has been directed by Anil Ravipudi.
In an interview with indianexpress.com, Mahesh Babu said, “I think that is the strength of my director Anil Ravipudi. It is not a joke to strike a balance between heroism and comedy in the character of an army officer. At the same time, we should handle the character with care. The director kept all the elements in mind and has delivered an entertainer. I think people will be amazed by what Anil Ravipudi has done. He has evolved as a director with this film.”
He added, “The movie will be a blockbuster (smiles). Not just me, my entire team is feeling very confident about the film’s success.”
