In his upcoming film Naa Peru Surya, Allu Arjun will be seen playing a military officer. The project, to be directed by Vakkantham Vamsi, goes on the floors in Hyderabad later on Wednesday. Tipped to be an action drama with a patriotic angle, the film will feature Arjun in a new avatar. He has started working out with a US-based trained to attain a certain body to play his part. Contrary to rumours, he won’t sport six-pack abs for his role but will be seen in a complete physical makeover.

Popular writer Vakkantham Vamsi, known for his contribution to hit films such as Kick and Temper, makes his directorial debut with the project. Apparently, Vamsi was supposed to make his directorial debut nearly two years ago when a leading star promised to work with him. Unfortunately, the project never took off and Vamsi had to wait, hoping things would magically become alright. They didn’t and he was shattered as his long wait to don the director’s hat didn’t come true. Finally, when he pitched the story to Arjun, he immediately agreed to do the project.

While most top stars have second thoughts about working with a newcomer, Arjun is teaming up with Vamsi because he believed in the script and his vision. The film will have music by Vishal-Sekhar duo and popular cinematographer-filmmaker Rajeev Ravi will crank the camera and this project marks his Telugu debut. Anu Emmanuel has been confirmed to play the leading lady. Tamil actors Sarath Kumar and Arjun will be seen playing important roles.
