Since the release of Shah Rukh Khan's 'Jawan' in September 2023, Atlee has swiftly risen to become the most coveted director in Indian Cinema. 

Actors across the industry are eager to join forces with him, leading Atlee to engage in meetings with several Indian Cinema superstars to explore potential collaborations. 

Currently, all eyes are on Atlee's next project, with speculation rife about his collaboration with superstar Allu Arjun.

According to insider reports from Pinkvilla, Allu Arjun is the frontrunner for Atlee's upcoming venture. Advanced talks between the director and the actor suggest that the film promises to be a 'solid commercial entertainer,' showcasing Allu Arjun in a never-before-seen avatar.

“There be 100 percent clarity on Atlee and Allu Arjun’s collaboration by the end of January. If everything goes as planned, the next for Allu Arjun after Pushpa 2 will be with Atlee,” the source was quoted saying to Pinkvilla.  

While the details of the mega project are expected to become clear by the end of January next year, both Atlee and Allu Arjun are occupied with their ongoing commitments. Allu Arjun is engrossed in 'Pushpa 2: The Rule,' the highly anticipated sequel to his superhit

'Pushpa 1: The Rise.' Additionally, he has a project with Trivikram slated for 2025.

Similarly, Atlee is immersed in the making of 'VD 18,' featuring Varun Dhawan in the lead role, alongside Wamiqa Gabbi and Keerthy Suresh.
