Chennai, July 9 (IANS) Producer Allu Aravind is proud of his son Allu Arjun, whose latest Telugu outing “Sarrainodu” has emerged as the highest grossing film in the actor’s career and among the biggest hits in Telugu filmdom.
“‘Ghajini’ was Aamir’s biggest hit back then. ‘Magadheera’ is Ram Charan’s highest grossing film. Now, I am happy that ‘Sarrainodu’ also made on our Geetha Arts banner is Allu Arjun’s highest grossing film and among the biggest hits of Telugu cinema,” Aravind told IANS.
This year so far has been phenomenal for Arjun, who bagged four awards for his powerful role in Telugu historic drama “Rudhramadevi”.
