Malayalam actor Mamitha Baiju, who is basking in the success of her latest movie Premalu , has revealed her biggest celebrity crush recently. She expressed her admiration for Telugu superstar Allu Arjun, mentioning that she was a die-hard fan and even used to mimic his dressing styles.

Mamitha Baiju's fascination with Allu Arjun

"I am a big Allu Arjun fan. At one point, I was crazy about him. I developed a fascination for Casio watches after watching movies like Gajapokkiri (Julayi) and Romeo and Juliet (Iddarammayilatho), where he sported them. I even imitated his dressing style, especially during my school days. I used to dress just like him, wearing a full-arm t-shirt with a shirt over it, and then folding the sleeves of the shirt," she shared during a radio channel interview.

It's worth noting that Allu Arjun enjoys a substantial fan following in Kerala, beyond the Telugu-speaking states. Before gaining recognition in Hindi-speaking states with Pushpa: The Rise, he was a major hit with Malayalam audiences worldwide. Due to his popularity in Kerala, he earned the nickname "Mallu Arjun." All of Allu Arjun's movies have been dubbed in Malayalam and have performed exceptionally well at the Kerala box office.

Premalu a big box office hit

Mamitha Baiju scored the biggest hit of her career with Premalu. Written and directed by Girish AD, the film also stars Naslen K. Gafoor in the lead role.

Premalu opened in cinemas without much pre-release buzz. However, thanks to highly favourable reviews and terrific word of mouth, the movie has managed to make a significant dent at the box office.


According to reports, Premalu, which was released in cinemas on February 9, to cash in on the Valentine's Day celebrations, has so far raked in more than Rs 30 crore from its worldwide ticket sales. The movie is already considered a blockbuster given that it was only made on a budget of Rs 3 crore.

Premalu, bankrolled by Fahadh Faasil, Dileesh Pothan, and Syam Pushkaran, also stars Sangeeth Prathap, Shyam Mohan M, Akhila Bhargavan and Meenakshi Raveendran among others.
