Allu Arjun is under pressure to deliver a blockbuster hit with two of his previous film releases, Duvvada Jagannadham and Naa Peru Surya turning out to be box office duds. In fact, Naa Peru Surya, which was directed by Vakkantham Vamsi, a well-known writer making his directorial debut, hit the marquee on May 4.
The film received a lukewarm response among the audience. The actor is under compulsion to deliver a big hit and still there is no news about the starâ€™s next. While fans are waiting eagerly for information about their idolâ€™s next movie, we hear that it may be bankrolled by ace producer Dil Raju under his banner Sri Venkateswara Creations.
Allu Arjunâ€™s initial plan was to team up with director Vikram Kumar of Manam fame but now he has put the project on hold. Sources in the know say that the star is keen on delivering a mass hit and is looking for a subject on those lines. And Dil Raju has come forward to bankroll the venture.
There is also a buzz that the producer was looking forward to rope in another top star for the film but it eventually fell on Allu Arjunâ€™s lap. The duo are still discussing the film, which is tentatively titled Sabhaku Namaskaram, and the director for it is yet to be finalised.
Allu Arjunâ€™s last big hit was Sarrainodu which hit the marquee in 2016. The star and his fans have been looking forward for a massive hit and the new film with Dil Raju could just be it.
Sources in the know say that the Sabhaku Namaskaram team has planned it as a mass entertainer and more details about it including the director and the rest of the cast and crew will be disclosed soon. Until then, Allu Arjunâ€™s fans need to wait patiently.
