Allu Arjun is currently on cloud nine and all thanks to his last release, Ala Vaikunthapurramloo. The stylish star has become every filmmaker's favourite as they want him to cast in their directorial ventures.
Despite having a solid demand, Allu Arjun is being very choosy when it comes to selecting a good script. However, the actor doesn't like to repeat the same formula. Well, it was proved when Allu Arjun rejected Vijay Deverakonda-starrer Geetha Govindam. Here's the full story:
When Geetha Govindam Was Offered To Allu Arjun
Many people don't know that Geetha Govindam starring Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna was earlier offered to Allu Arjun. Yes, you read that right! Director Parasuram first narrated the script to Allu Aravind post which they approached the actor.
Allu Arjun Rejected Geetha Govindam
Interestingly, Allu Arjun had liked the script but he rejected the offer. Bunny rejected Geetha Govindam because he had already created a mass image with the action drama Sarrainodu. Hence, he thought the cine lovers will not accept him in the romantic comedy-drama. Allu Arjun indeed lost his chance and rest is the history.
