As far as we can remember, his films always took more than 6 months time to complete and only Businessman was shot in a total of 43 days.
Now, Sarileru Neekevvaru started shooting on 5th July and it was wrapped on 18th December. Anil Ravipudi executed his plan to make the film in given time, to the tee.
He was given the chance to direct the movie by Mahesh and Anil Sunkara, Dil Raju, the producers of the film, with a clause that the movie should release by Sankranthi.
As Anil got the chance, Sukumar's project got axed which could have gone on floors from February, 2020, in ideal world. In any case, Mahesh Babu took this again as a challenge after Businessman and gave dates without breaks for the team to pull this off.
Businessman became a remarkable character for Mahesh and a hit movie, as well. Anil Ravipudi by bringing back veterans like Sangeetha, Vijayashanthi and Paruchuri Gopala Krishna to act in the film in important roles along with regulars like Prakash Raj, Rajendra Prasad made sure that the film will be a special one for Mahesh and his fans. We hope it will hit the bullseye for sure.
