Stylish star Allu Arjun is busy shooting for his next film Duvvada Jaggandham aka DJ, and going by the film’s teaser he’s believed to be playing a brahmin cook and his look in the film has already created quite a buzz on social media. HT has exclusively learnt that Arjun originally plays an undercover cop on the film.

“It’s on a mission he goes undercover as a brahmin cook. The makers are planning to keep the khaki look a secret and only plan to unveil in the film. Apparently, Arjun will be sporting a special look,” a source told HT, and added he will also shed some weight and look leaner for the role.

Being directed by Harish Shankar, the film also stars Pooja Hegde and it is apparently her that Arjun comes to save on a secret mission. The film was originally planned to be released in May but for reasons unknown it has been pushed to August.
