Sree Vishnu, who excelled in a grey role in Bhala Thandanana, will be seen in an action-packed cop drama Alluri, that releases on September 23. Kayadu Lohar is the female lead in the film written and directed by Pradeep Varma and bankrolled by Bekkem Venugopal under Lucky Media. A pre-release event of Alluri was held in Hyderabad yesterday for which Allu Arjun was the chief guest.
Allu Arjun and Sree Vishnu’s bromance was the major highlight of the pre-release event, where both actors shared the reasons behind their fondness for the other. “Sree Vishnu is among my very favourite people and I follow all of his works. Even in his debut film Prema Ishq Kaadhal, he stood out. He has a good taste for cinema, seeks newness in each of his films and works very hard,” Allu Arjun said.
“I respect Sree Vishnu for his commitment to deliver good films and I hope he scales newer peaks in the times to come. Please watch Alluri in theatres on September 23. I am currently busy amidst Pushpa 2 but when Vishnu asked me to come to the event, I couldn’t say no. He has never asked me for anything and when he did, I wanted to come,” he added.
Sree Vishnu told that it took five years for Alluri to materialise and thanked director Pradeep Varma for being patient all along. “Alluri is a unique cop story spanning 20 years. The film has a fictional story inspired by true incidents. Allu Arjun was a person who advised me to choose my stories carefully right after Prema Ishq Kaadhal and told that he would always be there for me.”
“Allu Arjun told that the trend of the industry would change in the next five years, right during the making of Race Gurram. He promised to arrange for producers too if necessary. He asked me not to hesitate to ask for any help and today he’s here,” the actor stated. Kayadu Lohar, cast in the role of a girl Sandhya, thanked the director and the producer for the opportunity.
Director Pradeep Varma mentioned that the film would look like a biopic of a real-life officer and hinted that the narrative will offer many surprises for audiences. He applauded Sree Vishnu for his efforts to pull off four different looks and opined that audiences would remember him as Alluri for a long time to come. “It’s a film that’ll give you a kick,” he signed off.
