Thaman said that he saw the teaser of 'Aagadu' and it is Mahesh's best ever.[144] Aagadu first look revealing process is also creating a big buzz in industry making it more special.[145] Three first look posters and a 51 seconds Teaser of the film were released on 31 May 2014 to coincide with the actor Krishna's birthday.[146][147][148] The first look posters and teaser received viral response on social networking websites. The teaser received nearly 0.4 million hits in less than 18 hours of release and 1 million hits in 4 days turning into a huge success.[149][150][151]

However, the visuals and Mahesh's style portrayed in the teaser were alleged to be inspired from Pawan Kalyan's Gabbar Singh and the dialogues in the teaser were also alleged as a satires on Pawan Kalyan, N. T. Rama Rao Jr. and Balakrishna. The teaser also kicked off two small controversies along with the above one. While one of them was Samantha's tweet on the teaser which was confirmed a fake one by her in her official twitter page. The second being Kona Venkat's comments on the teaser which literally translates into "Some people keep their work aside and focus on others. Such people will be the first to go out of focus."[152][153] However on 4 June 2014 in an event in Hyderabad, Mahesh stated that the dialogues uttered in the teaser were not aimed at any one and is not a personal one.[154] He added that the dialogue shows the attitude of the character played by him in the film.[155] It was confirmed in mid-July 2014 that the second teaser of the film would release on August 9, 2014 on the eve of Mahesh Babu's birthday.[156]

Pre-release revenues[edit]

In the first week of June 2014, it was reported that Gemini TV bought the satellite rights of the film for an amount of INR9.75 crores which is one of the highest amount for a Telugu film ever and was also a very early deal which happened just after the release of first look of the film.[157][158] The film surpassed Pawan Kalyan's Attarintiki Daredi which previously held the record of highest satellite deal which was INR9 crores.[159]
