After creating a storm at the Telugu box-office with earnings of over Rs 100 crore in just a week since its release, Allu Arjun’s Duvvada Jagannadham aka DJ is confirmed to release in dubbed Malayalam version in Kerala on July 14. Arjun has a very strong fan base in Kerala after his last film Sarrainodu went on to strike goldmine in the state. Despite opening to very mixed reviews, the film went on to be a blockbuster in Telugu, leaving everybody in trade completely bamboozled.
In the film, Arjun plays a brahmin chef, and he apparently 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. The film marked the first time collaboration of Arjun and director Harish Shankar, best known for helming Gabbar Singh.
The film registered one of the best openings for Arjun, who continues his winning streak after last year’s blockbuster Sarrainodu. Produced by Dil Raju, the film marks his third hit in a row with Arjun after Arya and Parugu. DJ released in around 1500 screens worldwide and is going strong everywhere.
