In recent times, if there is one movie that shook the entire Tollywood industry with its raw content and near to life screenplay it would most probably be the cult classic, Arjun Reddy.
This movie took many cine insiders by surprise as it stood as a blockbuster in spite of all the controversies and hurdles surrounding it. Sharwanand was first approached to play the male lead character but he rejected the proposal as he felt that he wouldn’t fit into the character, given his clean and family hero image.
Another actor who rejected Arjun Reddy is Parvati Nair, this Uttama Villain actor felt that the intimate content and lip lock scenes would not click well and she said that she didn’t believe in the capabilities of a debut director, Sandeep Reddy Vanga
She added that there was a time when she regretted rejecting the movie and was awestruck by Sandeep’s screenplay that kept the audience glued to the screen.
It’s fair to say that most of us didn’t expect such a humongous success for the movie.
