Allu Arjun and Ileana-starrer, Julayi, was supposed to release on Friday, the 13th. But the film’s release was pushed back to August at the eleventh hour.
The speculation was that the makers of Julayi did this because of the roaring success of Eega. But, the real reason is that Allu Arvind, father of the film’s hero, has asked director Trivikram Srinivas to reshoot some key portions.
Arvind wasn’t happy with the parts where Arjun’s grey character undergoes redemption and felt that more needs to be done to justify the protagonist’s transition. Allu Arjun and a few others will now shoot for another 3-4 days.
There are also reports that an item song might be added to add some glam quotient to this action adventure. However, a source close to Arjun denied these reports.
“We had finished the shooting of the promotional song with Allu Arjun and Devi sri prasad more than a week ago and the film is ready for release. We do not have enough patch work, so were is question of re-shooting. And also these rumours about adding an item song are baseless. Our film doesn’t need an item number,” the source said.
Maybe, Arvind just wants to be doubly sure about the success of his son’s film.
