Manchu Vishnu, the newly-elected President of Movie Artistes’ Association (MAA) has admitted that he is jealous of Allu Arjun after ‘Pushpa’ was officially announced by the star.
Both the actors from celebrity families in Telugu cinema grew up in the closed circle and used to meet each other during functions and family get-togethers.
Vishnu praised Allu Arjun saying the latter is a good human. “A very good friend and we often chat on phone and share what’s happening in each other’s lives. But when Allu Arjun made the official announcement of his pan-India film ‘Pushpa’, I felt very jealous. He took a great leap as a film star and reached various stages. He is in a position to compete with a Bollywood star like Aamir Khan,” he added.
The much-awaited film ‘Pushpa’ will be released on December 17. Starring Rashmika Mandanna as the female lead, the Sukumar directorial has Icon Star Allu Arjun in the titular role Pushpa Raj, playing the role of a red sander smuggler in Nallamala jungle. Reports are rife that the Allu Arjun starrer might lock horns with Aamir Khan’s upcoming film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ which is expected to release on the same day just before Christmas.
