Allu Arjun and Arjun Reddy movie don’t just share the same name but also the characteristics. It is already known that Vijay Devarakonda was not the initial choice for the blockbuster movie “Arjun Reddy”. Director Sandeep Vanga initially wanted to make this movie with Allu Arjun and even met him six years back and narrated this story.
Even though, Allu Arjun had liked the story and the hero characterization, he could not proceed further owing to the doubts on the debutant Sandeep Vanga’s direction capabilities. Later Sandeep Vanga found his Arjun Reddy in Vijay Devarakonda and as they say rest is history.
It is heard that Allu Arjun was very much impressed with the concept of hero character having anger management issues and asked his “Naa Peru Surya” film director Vakkantham Vamsi to embed this concept into the story as he never acted in such role in his entire film career. After the release of “Naa Peru Surya” first impact video, Allu Arjun’s fans are of opinion that Allu Arjun did a grave mistake by missing the opportunity to work in Arjun Reddy, had he accepted that film, he would have nailed it with his powerful performance.
