With every passing day, expectations for Bharat Ane Nenu keeps escalating, thanks to Koratala Shiva for showing the ‘actor’ Mahesh Babu we have been waiting to see.
Mahesh will be seen essaying the role of Chief Minister of united Andhra Pradesh. Sources say that the makers have locked the run time of the movie to 2 hours and 40 minutes. BAN has been upping everyone’s excitement levels ever since it was announced. The runtime of Bharat Ane Nenu is two minutes less than their blockbuster outing Srimanthudu and Koratala Siva felt that the film has enough length to explain the stuff. Going by the unprecedented craze, BAN is expected to shatter several box-office records.

The distributors have planned to hold 2,000 premiere shows for this political drama on 19th April, a day before it hits the screens in India. The ticket price is $20 for adults and $15 for children for the preview shows.
