Buzz: Lokesh Moves To Another Mega Hero

For three times in a row, Stylish Star Allu Arjun has rejected three Tamil directors who have reached out to him with scripts. After rejecting Linguswamy’s script which eventually went to become Ram’s The Warrior, the mega hero also rejected to do a came in Atlee’s Jawan with Shah Rukh Khan, and then a story narrated by Vikram fame Lokesh Kanagaraj. Here’s what is being heard about this last filmmaker now.

After Allu Arjun expressed his inability to star in a new film narrated by Lokesh Kanagaraj, the filmmaker is said to be trying for another big mega hero to close the deal. Reports are coming out that Global Star Ram Charan has responded positively to Lokesh’s video call regarding the story, and they will be meeting in Hyderabad soon after the RRR star returns back from the USA. If Charan agrees to the story, this film will take immediately after the director wraps Vijay’s Leo.

As Lokesh picked up superstars like Vijay, Kamal Haasan and Vijay Sethupati already, he’s now focusing to work with big Telugu heroes such that his brand goes to the next level. In case a film with Charan happens as rumoured, surely he will become the next sought after pan-India directors like Rajamouli and Prashant Neel. But then, he has to prove it big with a non-Tamil film at the box office as Charan would be doing only straight Telugu movies for the now.
