It would be almost impossible to even begin to imagine a world where Allu Arjun is not a movie actor. The man has been a part of so many huge blockbusters and delivered so many iconic characters that you almost feel like he was born to be a movie. However, what if we told you that Allu Arjun himself did not initially want to be an actor. Dazed? Well, the reveal comes straight from his younger brother, Allu Sirish, who, in an exclusive interview with BollywoodLife, revealed to us that the two brothers wanted completely different career paths from where they ended up in. growing. And today being Allu Arjun’s birthday and all, we couldn’t think of a better opportunity to share this interesting little anecdote with all of you.
Opening up on their childhood dreams, Allu Sirish said: “Actually, we never thought of acting (like a career) as children. I used to say a cricketer or WWF (now WWE) (like his future career). In fact, I seriously thought I would be a WWF player. Hulk Hogan was my childhood favorite. We (him and Allu Arjun) that we would probably play cricket, you know … or something random (that came to their mind) because playing, we did (as child artists ), but we thought we would do a one-off for fun or something. We never thought it was our business (both from the prestigious and old Telugu Cinema Allu-Konidela family of films) … we never thought of it that way.
Pointing out when the acting bug finally bit the two brothers, he added: “After 16 years, once you’ve started watching a movie and you know a lot more about it, you might think that this scene could have been like this or maybe i would have done it this way, you already know these things. From there it starts to seep into your brain and at 18, 19, or 20 you know that’s what you’re going to do for the rest of your life.
Well, luckily for all of us, Allu Arjun finally chose to be an actor. We wish you a very happy birthday, Allu Arjun. Continue to entertain us for years on the big screen.
