Is Allu Arjun aping Bollywood star Salman Khan? The first bunch of publicity photographs of his latest film, Desamuduru, indicates that he has built up a superb body. Like Salman Khan or Hrithik Roshan, Allu Arjun has developed muscles, and triceps. He looks awesome in the stills.

What a transformation! From feminine looks in his debut film (Gangothri) to the macho metro sexual style, the journey has been remarkable for Allu Arjun.

The publicity stills have created a stir in Tollywood circles and raised the expectations much higher. Hotshot director Puri Jagannadh (of Pokiri fame) is directing Desamuduru, and it is his idea to present Allu Arjun in Bollywood style. He had also asked Bunny to grow hair for the film.

The film is nearing completion and is slated for a Sankranthi release (January 12). Newcomer Hansika Motwani is acting opposite Allu Arjun in Desamuduru.
