After a blockbuster start to this year with Ala Vaikuntapuramloo, Allu Arjun is all geared up to start shooting for his next film with Sukumar.
Going into the details of the project, we heard that Sukumar planned a thrilling chase sequence in the 1st half which will be a major highlight of the film. 2nd half of the film is still in scripting stage. Sukumar wants to take the project on sets without a bound script like he did with Rangasthalam. Intially Sukumar planned a flashback thread of hero’s mother who happens to be a prostitute. Anasuya was supposed to play that character but the latest we hear is Sukumar scrapped the whole idea as he felt it might be too harsh. Main story revolves around Allu Arjun who will be playing a red sandal smuggler and Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathy playing a forest officer role.
The production planned a 3 month extensive forest shoot in Kerala but due to the recent corona virus outbreak the schedule was canceled. Sukumar is extensively working on to complete the script and if allowed, shoot will start in April at Hyderabad. Allu Arjun will join the shoot in May.
Sukumar developed this script for Superstar Mahesh but due to creative differences over bound script, this project landed on Allu Arjun who at that time agreed to do the film without narration. Interestingly, Sukumar is making the exact change that Mahesh wanted. Team Allu Arjun is said be unhappy now as the 2nd half of the film is still incomplete even after Sukumar working on it for 2 years!
