Doing Hindi film will be landmark for me, have to choose well: Allu Arjun

Allu Arjun

Superstar Allu Arjun on Thursday said he has received several offers to star in Hindi films but he is waiting for the right opportunity as making his Bollywood debut will be a milestone in his career.
Arjun, one of the biggest stars of Telugu cinema, says doing a Hindi film has been on his mind for quite some time and he has been in conversation with a few filmmakers for “something big”.
“I love Hindi cinema. I have grown up watching it. I definitely want to do a straight Hindi film. It will be a landmark point in my career and I want to make the best possible choice for it. There have been a few offers but nothing really interesting or exciting has come up,” he said.
The 39-year-old old actor is known for films like the “Arya” franchise, “Julayi” and his 2020 blockbuster “Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo”.
Whenever he makes his Bollywood debut, Arjun said, he would want the project to be as massive as his past films in Telugu cinema.
“We have been in talks that if we can do something, (and) how to do, if we want to do something big. Because people who come to me, they say they have come with something solid. Once everything falls into place, I’ll try to plan and come up with something big,” he told reporters.
The actor was speaking at a special event of his latest, “Pushpa: The Rise”, helmed by “Arya” filmmaker Sukumar.
He was joined by co-star Rashmika Mandanna, music composer Devi Sri Prasad, and producer Manish Shah.
The thriller will be released in cinema halls in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Kannada and Malayalam on Friday.
Arjun said he is keen to mount all his future films as “pan India” projects as language is no longer a hindrance.
“I would like to make everything pan India… Language is no barrier for cinema. I would say we should go for a multi-language release and see how far we can go as Indian cinema,” he added. (PTI)
