During a recent interaction with Indian Express, Telugu superstar Allu Arjun said that he isn’t worried about his ‘Duvvada Jagannadham’ hitting screens on the same day as Bollywood star Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight. Moreover, he wished ‘Bhai’ and his team good luck.
“First thing is I’m never worried about anything. I wish Tubelight all the best. I want the best film to be watched, even if it’s mine,” he added.
Echoing similar sentiments, his co-star Pooja Hegde said that both films are meant for different audiences. And, hence, there is no question of them affecting each other’s business.
“I think that both films will do well because there are different audiences and it’s a long weekend. So whoever watches Tubelight, will also watch DJ. So I don’t see any challenge over there.” She said.

Featuring Bunny in two different avatars, it has already created buzz amongst fans thanks to its gripping trailer and foot tapping music. This is Allu Arjun’s first outing of 2017.
