Puri Jagan’s Pokiri will create a new record, as the fastest Mahesh Babu film ever to be shot, completed and released! Nearly 80 percent of Pokiri is complete with only the climax and two songs to be canned.

If all goes well, Pokiri will release on schedule on April 21 bang in the middle of summer holidays. The film is said to be a mass masala with Ileana as heroine. The film is crucial for Mahesh and Puri as they need a hit badly.

Mahesh is one star who has a fantastic opening all over Andhra and Chennai. The kind of opening that his Athudu took, had even amazed the trade. So will Pokiri be one up on Athadu ?
