Actor Allu Arjun is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming action-thriller Naa Peru Surya which is directed by debutante director Vakkantham Vamsi. Allu Arjun will be seen playing an Indian army soldier in the film and is said to be an intense role. The actor has left no stone unturned to look like a soldier in terms of physique and the look, going by the posters and teaser. Naa Peru Surya is slated to be released on May 4th, 2018 worldwide and will be the biggest release this summer. While all this is happening, reports are doing rounds that Allu Arjun may soon collaborate with Tamil filmmaker Atlee who recently delivered hit film Mersal starring Vijay. News has it that Atlee has narrated a script to Allu Arjun and the stylish star has given his go ahead, in principal, and further discussions are yet to take place. Reports also indicate that the film will be bankrolled by Allu Arjun’s home production Geetha Arts and will be a Telugu-Tamil bilingual.
Few days ago, buzz in the industry was that Atlee had narrated a story to Jr NTR but the actor couldn’t take up the project due to prior commitments. Atlee then approached Allu Arjun with the same story and the actor is said to have given his go ahead, reports indicate. If this materialises, then the film will be one of the most interesting collaborations in South Indian cinema.
Atlee is known for portraying heroes in films in the most dynamic and stylish manner which falls in line with what Allu Arjun’s pattern of movies in the last few years have been. Atlee’s latest release, Mersal, was one of the biggest hits in Tamil in 2017 and amplified Vijay’s stardom to an unimaginable level. And if Atlee and Allu Arjun team up, as being reported, then the same is expected to take place with the stylish star who already enjoys a huge following in South India.
