After a gap of seven years Mahesh Babu is releasing his film for Sankranthi festival. 

Puri Jagannadh has fixed the release date for his movie with Mahesh Babu. The Business Man will release on January 12, 2012. 

Puri usually sticks to the release dates and he is known for finishing films in a very short span of time. 

Remember he made the record-breaking Pokiri in just 6 months with a Rs 10 Crore budget. His recent Hindi film, Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap, was also completed in just four months. 

So Puri made it clear that he will release The Business Man on January 12, 2012 and will resume regular shoot from August end. 

Mahesh Babu's last film to hit the screens on Sankranthi festival was Okkadu, which was one of the biggest hits of all time in Telugu film industry. After Okkadu, none of Mahesh`s movies released in January.
