Manmadhudu 2: Nagarjuna, Rakul Preet Singh's romantic film to release on 9 August

The sequel to Akkineni Nagarjuna's blockbuster 2002 romantic comedy Manmandhudu recently launched in Annapurna Studios in Hyderabad. Manmadhudu 2 stars Rakul Preet Singh alongside Nagarjuna, who announced the film's release date. The veteran actor announced that sequel was scheduled to hit screens on 9 August.

This release date essentially puts Manmadhudu 2 in a position where it will face stiff competition from Prabhas-starrer Saaho within a week of release as the latter is releasing on 15 August.

The project will be steered by actor-director Rahul Ravindran, who made his debut as a director with 2018 Telugu rom-com Chi La Sow

The music of the film will be composed by Chaitan Bharadwaj (of RX 100-fame) whereas the cinematography will be handled by M Sukumar. It will be jointly produced by Manam Enterprises and Anandi Arts.

The original film narrated the story of a man working at an advertising agency who gradually falls in love with an office co-worker. The film starred Sonali Bendre and Anshu in the lead roles, along with Nagarjuna. The film was later remade as Aishwarya in Kannada, marking the debut of Deepika Padukone.

On the work front, Rakul Preet last appeared in a Telugu movie in 2017 with AR Murugadoss-starrer Spyder. Meanwhile, in the Hindi film industry, the actress was part of Ajay Devgn's 2019 romantic comedy De De Pyaar De.

SS Rajamouli is right, RRR is not a Bollywood film, although it aspires to be one

If push comes to shove, RRR is more ‘Bollywood’ than Bollywood itself. The bromance between Ram Charan and NTR Jr is a direct echo of Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra’s Jai and Veru act in Ramesh Sippy’s Sholay.
