Ram Pothineni to replace Allu Arjun in Venu Sriram’s Icon


Allu Arjun is now more well-known than simply in the south of India; he is also one of the most adored and followed celebrities worldwide. While Bunny—as he is affectionately referred to by his fans and colleagues in the industry—was primarily recognized for his Telugu films, Pushpa: The Rise established him as a household celebrity. We now have an update on one of the offers that AA has received after his huge success. He was supposed to do: Icon, directed by Venu Sriram.

According to rumors, Arjun was expected to start filming for this Venu Sriram production as soon as Pushpa 2 (also known as Pushpa: The Rule) was finished. Recent reports, however, say that teamwork is not functioning anymore. Read on to learn more about why?

Allu Arjun’s Icon with filmmaker Venu Sriram is reportedly no longer happening. According to a source familiar with the situation, “Bunny has backed out of Venu Sriram’s Icon for a lot of reasons. His upcoming lineups and also the story is the reason why he decided to drop Venu’s movie.”

The website also quoted a different source as claiming, “Director Venu Sriram has pitched a script to Ram Pothineni. The director and actor are in talks for the same. However, there is no confirmation if it is for the same film, Icon that Allu Arjun was supposed to do or a new subject”. Time will tell if Venu intends to resuscitate Icon or not. It would have been Allu Arjun and Venu Sriram’s first project together. The movie was meant to be funded by renowned producer Dil Raju through his own company, Sri Venkateswara Creations.

Allu Arjun has a lot on his plate right now, according to numerous media sources. After Sarrainodu, he is reportedly ready to work with Boyapati Srinu once more. He is reportedly working on a project with director Prashanth Neel as well. His other movies include the one starring Koratala Siva and Pushpa 2 which is tentatively named AA21.
