Contrary to reports, senior actor Arjun is not playing antagonist in Allu Arjun's next movie. He has not signed for villain's role, says a source. The "Gentleman" star will be seen as Allu Arjun's dad in the movie.
Arjun has done many Telugu movies as lead star. He is said to have rejected this offer initially as he is not sure of playing father roles.
The 52-year-old got convinced only when he received call from Allu Arjun's dad Allu Aravind called him. A source says that Aravind told him that Arjun would have the same prominence that Mohan Lal got in NTR starrer "Janatha Garage".
The production house is also paying him huge remuneration. Titled "Naa Peru Surya", the film will be launched in June.
Allu Arjun will be seen as a young military officer. Vakkantham Vamsi who penned several hits like "Racegurram", "Kick", and "Temper" is turning director with this movie.
The film will have Bollywood heroine. Vishal - Sekhar, the hit Bollywood music composers duo, will be handling the music department.
