Those who are well-versed in Tamil and Malayalam cinema know the name Vineeth Sreenivasan. He has directed and acted in some good movies like Mukundan Unni Associates, Thankam, and Hridayam. Especially after the OTT boom, his name has become even more popular with even Telugu audiences.
Recently during an interview, he shared his experience of watching Pushpa in a town near Chennai. he said, “It was a goosebumps moment watching Pushpa in Perungudi. The audience cheering for Fahadh Faasil was bigger than that for Allu Arjun. Of course, in Telugu states, it would be different. But I watched in Tamil, and there FaFa had a bigger round of applause. It made me feel proud.”
These words from Vineeth should ring a bell in Allu Arjun’s mind. If what Vineeth said is true, then Allu Arjun needs to work on improving his market in Tamil Nadu.
Fahadh Faasil is neither a commercial hero nor has a big market in Tamil Nadu. And if he still is more popular than Allu Arjun, then Bunny has a lot of work to do in winning the Tamil audience’s hearts.
Allu Arjun is a big star in Kerala, but it looks like he needs to work on making more impact in Tamil Nadu.
