Earlier, there were reports that Allu Arjun and Sukumar are teaming up for a film with sandalwood smuggling at its main plot set against the Seshachalam forest backdrop. The script which is Sukumar’s favorite was earlier rejected by Mahesh Babu, and now the buzz is it is rejected by Allu Arjun as well. The Stylish Star is said to have asked Sukumar to come up with a love story. Sukumar is reportedly penning the script these days.
This will mean that Allu Arjun will do his Icon with Venu Sriram as his next project. The movie will have its launch for Dussehra. The regular shooting will begin from November expecting that Bunny will finish Trivikram’s film by then. In all probability, Allu Arjun may at least take till June to finish Icon which means Sukumar will idle for more than two years after delivering a non-Baahubali Industry Hit like Rangasthalam.
