Atlee Kumar’s impressive repertoire
Even though his repertoire of delivering hit and smash hit films down south is pretty long and impressive, this year saw him making his Bollywood debut with the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jawan, which was released in September 2023.

To add more to this, it has been reported that both the prolific director and the superstar actor are in advanced stages of talks and that the said film is reportedly a ‘solid commercial entertainer’. The film is reportedly going to present Allu Arjun like never before.
