Manmadhudu 2: Nagarjuna, Rakul Preet Singh's romantic film to release on 9 August
Manmadhudu 2 will be helmed by actor-director Rahul Ravindran, who made his debut as a director with 2018 Telugu rom-com Chi La Sow
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.
