Reports claim that Bommarillu Bhaskar, who was supposed to direct Karthi, the brother of South superstar Surya, in a bilingual movie, has shelved the project. So, he decided to do another film and approached Allu Arjun. The actor, who had worked with him in Parugu, was impressed by the storyline and gave a nod to act in the movie, say reports.
The proposed project will take off in 2012, as Allu Arjun is busy with Trivikram Srinivas's forthcoming Telugu movie. However, Bommarillu Bhaskar directorial movie is reportedly produced by BVSN Prasad.
