The film that gave stardom to Allu Arjun is the 2004 release, Arya. This romantic comedy is often considered a classic in Telugu cinema. After the moderate success of his debut film Gangotri, Allu Arjun came up with Arya and scored his first blockbuster. That is the reason why this flick will always remain a special one in his career.
On the 17th release anniversary of Arya, Allu Arjun took on social media to thank all the audience who loved the movie. He wrote, "It's 17 years of Arya today. It is the single most life-changing experience of my life. It's still the greatest miracle in my life. LOVE from the audience started showering on me after I said those golden words, 'Feel My Love.'" Allu Arjun further stated, "This movie changed the lives of so many people. It changed my course as an actor, Sukumar garu's life as a director, Dil Raju garu's life as a producer, DSP's life as a musician, Rathnavelu garu as a DOP, Bunny Vasu as a distributor then and many, many more lives. We all are so thankful to this one magic that came into our lives called ARYA. We all will always cherish this as the greatest milestone in our lives.
Thank You. Gratitude forever." Directed by Sukumar, Arya featured Anu Mehta as the female lead. Both Sukumar and Allu Arjun are now working together for the film Pushpa. This film will have a pan-India release in the second half of this year.
