Hyderabad: While Allu Arjun is eagerly awaiting the release of Duvvada Jagannadham (DJ), pre-production work of his next film ‘Naa Peru Surya’ is progressing at brisk pace.
The names of many front-line actresses are cropping up as potential heroines, and we can observe a refreshing change here. After considering thenames of emerging Kannada actress Rashmika Mandanna and talented performer Nivedha Thomas (she even took part in a photo shoot), now the name of another rising Malayalam beauty Anu Emmanuel is reportedly under final decision. All of these actresses are talented but not stars yet.
A few years ago, Allu used to romance with only star heroines. The likes of Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Kajal, Shruti Haasan, Rakul Preet, Ileana, Tamannah etc. They have all worked with him only after they became stars. This trend of romancing star heroines was broken when Pooja Hegde was brought on board for Duvvada Jagannadham.
Now, lesser popular actresses than Pooja are in contention to romance Allu Arjun in “Naa Peru Surya”.
There could be either of the below mentioned two reasons or both for this change.
First, Allu Arjun has already worked with all the top heroines and he will have to repeat them, so he is looking for fresh combinations.
Second reason is, Allu himself has become a huge star now that he doesn’t need the support of top heroines anymore.
Whatever the reason may be, Allu Arjun giving chance to promising actresses will create more star heroines in Tollywood, a win-win situation for all.
