Ala Vaikunthapurramulo

A couple of months before the pandemic was about to hit us in 2020, the festive atmosphere was quite evident in theatres across Telugu states with two major stars Allu Arjun and Mahesh Babu releasing their films Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, Sarileru Neekevvaru for Sankranthi. Both films turned out to be successful, but the taste of victory was sweeter in the case of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, more so for its director Trivikram, composer S Thaman and the lead actor Allu Arjun, who bounced back to show their true colours with a bang. 

Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo featured a superb star cast comprising Allu Arjun, Pooja Hegde, Navdeep, Rajendra Prasad, Tabu, Jayaram, Sushanth, Nivetha Pethuraj, Sachin Khedekar, Murali Sharma, to name a few. Two years into the film's release, the lead actors, composer S Thaman and the production house Haarika and Haasine Creations shared their happiness of being associated with it. 

"Sweetest Recall. 2 years of #AVPL. What a journey… I still feel the sweetness..Thank you #trivikram garu for the most spl experience ever. And my brother @musicthaman for the album of the decade, all my artists, techs., producers n the whole team. Congratulations to us once again . May we celebrate many more in years to come. Sweetga Undhi kadha… Nakugooda Nachindhi," Allu Arjun tweeted about the film, going down memory lane. 

Pan-Indian actress Pooja Hegde, who is on a roll across multiple industries with films like Beast, Cirkus and Radhe Shyam, took a funnier route to recollect her shoot experiences. Sharing a video where she and Allu Arjun's daughter Arha are dancing to Ramuloo Ramulaa from the film, Pooja Hegde wrote on Instagram, "On occasion of 2 years of Ala Vaikunthapurramloo, since you’ve already seen @alluarjunonline and I dancing, here’s some behind the scenes of Arha and I dancing while waiting for my shot 😂 P.S- I think we may have invented the #Buttabomma step somewhere in there unknowingly 🤭😉 #2YearsOfAVPL #funtimes #memories #ramulooramulaa."

She also took to Twitter to post, "When you make a film from your heart with a clear intention to have fun and make people laugh, magic can happen. 2 years of #AlaVaikunthapurramuloo and since working with the most amazing team. We thank you for making the film YOURS."

Meanwhile, composer S Thaman expressed his gratitude to the entire team of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. "With lots of love & Respect to my hero and Now the ICON @alluarjun gaaru & MY dear director Shri #Trivikram gaaru they made it happen for us !! #AVPLMUSIC is so close to my heart and for many, thanks to team @haarikahassine @GeethaArts #2YearsForNONBBIHAVPL 🎛," he posted.

The production house Haarika and Haasine Creations added, "#AlaVaikunthapurramuloo - one of the Glorious & Biggest Hits ever of Indian Cinema. With Gratitude for all the Love, Celebrating #2YearsForNONBBIHAVPL." Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo is currently streaming on Netflix, Sun NXT.
