Allu Arjun fans are facing a string of letdowns, as his much-anticipated film with director Atlee has reportedly been shelved. This news comes on the heels of strong speculation that Pushpa 2 might be delayed. Contrary to rumors that the collaboration fell apart due to Atlee’s high fee demands, the real reason lies elsewhere. Read on for more details, including the potential involvement of Salman Khan.

Director Atlee has become a sought-after filmmaker, with his recent successes at the box office, such as Thalapathy Vijay’s Bigil and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan.

There was significant buzz around Atlee’s potential collaboration with Allu Arjun. However, a report from Peeping Moon indicates that the Pushpa star turned down the offer. A source close to the situation explained, “They were indeed in discussions, but it was in the very early stages and the collaboration was never finalized, despite media speculation. Atlee is still working on the script and hasn’t confirmed anyone yet. It would have been incredible to see them team up for a major project, but as of now, the film with Allu Arjun and Atlee is not happening.”

Rumors claimed Atlee demanded a hefty salary of 80 crores, but this is not really what led to the decision. The report rubbished these “baseless conjectures” and claimed the duo shares a mutual respect for each other.

Allu Arjun and Atlee’s film fell through because their personal preferences did not align. Previously, the duo were also set to work together in Jawan. However, the South superstar was busy with the Pushpa 2 shoot, and Sanjay Dutt was eventually roped in to play the role.

The director has now approached Salman Khan for his upcoming project, but the talks are nascent. In addition, the production timeline has yet to be fixed, but based on the leading actor’s availability, the project will be on the floors. Currently, the team is eyeing the first quarter of 2025.
