After completing rom-com Duvvada Jagannadham, directed by Harish Shankar, Allu Arjun will be moving over to Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India directed by Vakkantham Vamsi. The popular scriptwriter, who had worked in films like Athidhi, Oosaravelli, Temper, Kick 1 and 2, will be making his directorial debut with the Allu Arjun film. After the film officially launched earlier this month, reports spread that Bollywood actor Bomman Irani had been approached to play an important role in Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India. It may be noted here that the actor has previously worked in Telugu films, such as Attarintiki Daredi and Bengal Tiger, and might move ahead with the project.
Allu Arjun has a slew of films underway, including Duvvada Jagannadham and Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India and a Tamil film that will be directed by Lingusamy. The last will mark his debut in the Tamil film industry. Diirector Lingusamy had said earlier that he will direct Allu Arjun before going ahead with the Vishal starrer Sandakozhi 2, but it looks like the project has been postponed to mid-2017 for various reasons.
While Duvvada Jagannadham is slotted for release on July 7th, the release date of Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India is yet to be finalised. Reports suggest that it could be a year-end release. In Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India, Kannada actor Rashmika Mandanna will be pairing up with the star.
In Duvvada Jagannadham, Allu Arjun plays the title role opposite Pooja Hegde. Devi Sri Prasad has composed music for this venture. The film was originally supposed to release on May 19th, but has now been postponed to July 7th.
