Excitement is brewing in the cinematic world as director Atlee hints at a potential collaboration with the Telugu superstar, Allu Arjun. After directing heavyweights like Thalapathy Vijay and Shah Rukh Khan, whispers about Atlee’s association with Allu Arjun for a grand action saga have been making rounds. This speculation gained more steam when Allu Arjun shared his views on Atlee’s recent release, ‘Jawan’. While the grapevine has been rife with their possible partnership for a while now, neither Atlee nor Allu Arjun has made any official statement about it.
However, in a recent conversation, Atlee shed some light on the matter. He expressed his admiration for Allu Arjun, highlighting their mutual respect for each other’s artistry. Atlee revealed, “Allu and I share a unique bond and appreciation for our work. We indeed have plans in mind. But every film is like a divine intervention; we need the right script and blessings to make it happen. Right now, we have the idea. Time and fate will tell the rest.”
Currently, Atlee is enjoying a well-deserved break and dedicating his time to his child, Meer. Having invested over three years into ‘Jawan’, the director believes he needs some time off before delving into his next venture. With aspirations to take his cinema to an international audience, Atlee is determined to surpass his own benchmark set by ‘Jawan’.
While ‘Jawan’ remains a significant part of his journey, Atlee’s horizons are expanding. He is venturing into production with ‘VD 18’, which boasts a stellar cast including Varun Dhawan and Keerthy Suresh. On top of that, Atlee mentioned potential discussions with Bollywood icons like Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh. He emphasized the importance of a compelling script to turn these conversations into reality.
With so many hints and teases, cinema enthusiasts can only wait in anticipation to see which of these potential collaborations will light up the silver screen next.
