Mahesh cautions producer Dil Raju

Superstar Mahesh Babu has reportedly cautioned producer Dil Raju to wrap up shooting by August and release their multi-starrer Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu, also featuring Venkatesh, Samanta and Anajali, by September 29 this year. If not, the film will only be released on September 29, 2013, as Mahesh will be unable to allot dates in between.

“He wants to move on with his other two projects and sort out the dates for them. If, for some reason, the shooting of SVSM is extended beyond schedule, Mahesh will only be able to allot dates next year. So the unit is working hard to meet the deadline,” says an industry source. Despite a few hiccups caused by Prakash Raj, the shooting is carrying on at the right pace and the film could be released this year. Deferring the release by a whole year could spell doom for the producer, so things are being hurried.
