Seasoned actor Boman Irani, best known for his work in films such as Munnabhai MBBS and 3 Idiots, has landed a pivotal role in Allu Arjun’s next Telugu outing. While official confirmation is still awaited from the makers; however, sources close to the film’s unit have confirmed the news. Last seen in Pawan Kalyan’s Attarintiki Daaredhi where he played the role of a grandfather and in Ravi Teja’s Bengal Tiger, Irani is tipped to be playing a character with negative shades in this c directorial.

Tentatively titled Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India, the film marks the first time collaboration of Vamsi and Arjun. Launched earlier this month, the film is tipped to go on the floors from May, soon after Arjun wraps up Duvvada Jagannadham with Harish Shankar. Apparently, it was Arjun who suggested to the makers that they approach Irani for the role as he was impressed with the latter’s performance in his uncle Pawan Kalyan’s film.

After wrapping up these two projects, Arjun will finally commence work on his long-pending Tamil project with Linguswamy. Although launched last year, the film is yet to go on the floors and it was believed to have been shelved at one point.
