Born in a film family, Arjun’s interface with the camera began as a baby in Chiranjeevi’s Vijetha. He moved towards animation as a youngster, but eventually returned home… to films, debuting with K. Raghavendra Rao’s Gangotri (2003).
Since then he has been unstoppable. Thanks to satellite and social media, his films and fame have reached the remotest corners of the world including the sandy ridges of the Middle East. His swagger and sex-appeal having a universal idiom . Grandson of actor Allu Rama Lingaiah, son of filmmaker Allu Aravind, nephew to Chiranjeevi and actor/filmmaker Pawan Kalyan, cousin of Ram Charan and older brother of Allu Sirish… Allu Arjun may belong to a film clan, but his charisma is his own.
He has a huge fan base from the Middle East and some of them had come to Hyderabad just to see him. They had been waiting for almost two days in the hope of catching a glimpse. “I invited them in and offered them tea. They shared that they had a collection of my pictures and videos back home. They watched my films even though they didn’t understand the language. It was a humbling experience,” says the superstar.
Here’s wishing him several successful decades in the film industry and beyond!
It’s has been 18years since my first film released. I wanted to thank each n everyone who has been a part of my 18years journey. My heart is filled with gratitude. I am truly blessed for all the love showered over the years . Thank you for all the blessings. Gratitude. AA
