After the smash hit first single, released last week, the one-minute promo of stylish star Allu Arjun’s next number was released on Monday and it clocked a million views in just five hours, literally going viral. A peppy dance number, Gudilo Badilo Madilo, the song was choreographed by Ganesh Acharya and it features Arjun and Pooja Hegde. The entire song was shot across exotic locations in Abu Dhabi.

Tipped to be an action entertainer made on a whopping budget, the film marks the first time collaboration of Arjun and Harish Shankar, most popular for directing Gabbar Singh. Industry insiders reveal that the film has come out very well and the makers are very confident about its success when it hits the screens on June 23.

Allu Arjun plays a Brahmin chef in DJ, in Harish Shankar’s direction. Arjun, according to reliable sources, took his role so seriously that he gave up eating meat, while shooting the portion where he plays the chef, as he wanted to get under the skin of the character and stay pure. His dedication stunned the entire unit, including his director and co-star Pooja Hegde, who plays his love interest. It’s for the first time in his career, Arjun is playing such a character and he didn’t want anything about it to stick out like a sore thumb.
