After previously locking horns with Ram Charan Tej during the festive period, the actor is all set for a clash with Allu Arjun this January. According to sources, Allu Arjun’s forthcoming film directed by Boyapati Srinu, will go on floors on July 19 and the makers are looking to release the film during Pongal next year. Mahesh Babu’s next film Brahmotsavam is already scheduled to hit screens on January 8, which could mean there could be a high-profile box-office clash between Mahesh and Bunny.

Incidentally, Mahesh was involved in similar Pongal face-offs with Ram Charan Tej for two consecutive years. In 2013, Charan’s Naayak and Mahesh Babu’s Seethamma Vakitlo Sirimalle Chettu released at the same time. Last year too, Mahesh’s 1:Nenokkadine clashed with Ram Charan’s Yevadu for Pongal. This time, it seems like Mahesh will have to battle it out with Allu Arjun, who’s still riding on high on the success of Race Gurram.

Meanwhile, Mahesh’s forthcoming film Srimanthudu directed by Koratala Siva is all set to release on August 7.
