Why Did Allu Arjun Reject This Blockbuster?

Veteran Writer Vijayendra Prasad, who has given stories to back to back blockbusters Baahubali and Bajarangi Bhaijaan, is the most sought after story writer in Indian Cinema at the moment.

Vijayendra Prasad is elated with how the audiences are reacting to Bajarangi Bhaijaan in particular, a story that is so close to his heart.

Vijayendra Prasad took his inspiration from Chiranjeevi’s yesteryear’s hit Pasivaadi Pranam and added Indo-Pak theme to it.

This story was narrated to Aamir Khan who was impressed but couldn’t allot dates due to busy schedules, according to Prasad. Rajanikanth was also approached, but somehow that didn’t materialize. 

Allu Arjun too rejected this subject for unknown reasons. Finally Salman Khan stepped in and the rest is history. Bajrangi Bhaijaan is going from strength to strength at the box office and also winning accolades from all corners.

Salman Khan did hundred percent justice to the role of Hanuman Bhakth in this film. Director Kabir Khan did great work in elevating the drama.

Wonder if the film would have been as good as the Hindi version if Allu Arjun did it in Telugu. Anyways Allu Arjun missed out on a blockbuster opportunity.
