The popularity of South Indian films and stardom of South Indian actors has seen an exponential increase in Hindi-speaking regions in recent years. The success of films like “Bahubali”, “KGF”, etc. are prime examples of this shift which has prompted several Bollywood filmmakers to collaborate with Tamil and Telugu actors.
Recently, Allu Arjun’s star “Pushpa” has become a box office sensation and a pop culture icon despite the odds created by the pandemic. Bollywood star Anupam Kher was so impressed with Arjun’s class act that he took to Twitter to like the actor and expressed his desire to work with him.
The tweet read: “Watched #Pushpa!! BLOCKBUSTER of a movie in the literal sense. Larger than life, adrenal rich and full paisa Vasool. And dear @alluarjun you are a #Rockstar!! I loved every nuance and attitude of yours. I hope to work with you soon. A round of applause to the whole team ! Jai Ho!”
Allu Arjun was quick to respond, tweeting, “Anupam ji… it’s a pleasure to receive a sincere compliment from you. Humbled. So glad you felt all of this. Hope to work with you too. Thank you for all the love??.”
