The rumours that Mahesh Babu's upcoming film is the sequel to his previous blockbuster Dookudu have been shot down by director Srinu Vytla, who trashed them as baseless. On being contacted regarding the rumours, Srinu said, “The title Aagadu has been confirmed but it has nothing to do with Dookudu. It's a new film altogether. In fact, even Dookude Dookudu has not been confirmed as the film's tagline. We haven't finalised one as yet." When asked whether Tamanna will pair up with Mahesh in the film, the director simply said, “We will soon make an official announcement regarding the film."
S.S. Thaman is said to be composing the music for the film, which will go on the floors after Mahesh wraps up One-Nenokkadine.
