In the whole fiasco of shifting Saaho release date, the big advantage comes for one film and that is none other Nagarjuna's Manmadhudu 2. While the senior hero bravely confirmed August 9th as the release date, many wondered why he's locking horns with Saaho which is release a week later.
Another side of the story is that Nagarjuna actually got the information about Saaho's postponement a bit in advance. Perhaps that is what made him stick to the original plan of releasing Manmadhudu 2 on August 9th. While all the distributors advised the senior hero to change the date, Nag has contemplated many possibilities for a while. And then, he has confirmed 9th, which makes anyone get a doubt that he might have got a clue from Saaho.
On the other hand, the absence of Saaho is making two films occupy that slot including Ranarangam and Evaru. Now, Nagarjuna has to compete with these two heroes on 15th after having a smooth 1 week at the box office.
