Producer Anil Sunkara said that his upcoming movie Sarileru Neekevvaru is going to be the biggest release in superstar Mahesh Babu's entire career. But the makers are yet to finalise its release date due to its clash with Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.

The makers of Sarileru Neekevvaru had earlier announced that the movie would hit the screens on January 12. The film has completed the censor formalities and received a U/A certificate on Wednesday. But the producers made an announcement about its censorship on January 2, but they didn't confirm its release date, which is the usual practice in the Telugu film industry.

Anil Sunkara tweeted on Wednesday night, "It's U/A for #SarileruNeekevvaru ❤ A Perfect Entertainer is all set for Grand World Wide Release Experience #SuperStarSankranthi Only In Theatres Super ⭐ @urstrulyMahesh @AnilRavipudi @AnilSunkara1 @vijayashanthi_m @iamRashmika @ThisIsDSP #MASSMB."
