S.S.Rajamouli's magum opus Baahubali doesn't seem to confine scaring away small budget films alone! It seems to hit hard on other big releases which were scheduled in the month of July as well! In fact, the teaser of Mahesh Babu's upcoming flick Srimanthudu was just released a day before Baahubali's trailer was released in Telugu. Srimanthudu was well appreciated for Mahesh's cool looks, simple portrayal of heroics in the Koratala Siva style! Going by the overwhelming response, the filmmakers of Srimanthudu planned to release it on July 17, just a week ahead of Baahubali's scheduled release.

However, as per our sources, the buyers are not coming forward to invest on Srimanthudu for the planned release date becuase they are fearing the larger than life competition with Baahubali. They apparently felt that Srimanthudu's collections would pale down by the storm which Baahubali might create. Owing to the genuine concerns of the buyers, the filmmakers of Srimanthudu are thinking of pushing the release to 7th of August which would collide with the timely birthday of the Superstar Mahesh Babu on that release weekend (9th Aug). 

Let us hope that the release date would be locked officially and Mahesh gives a memorable birthday treat to his fans!
