Allu Arjun clocks 15 million followers on Instagram

Arjun made his debut in 2003 with Gangotri

72-Allu-Arjun High rise: With a collection of over Rs300 crore, Allu Arjun’s Pushpa: The Rise has become the highest grossing film of 2021. It managed to beat other highly anticipated films like Spider Man: No Way Home and 83. Directed by Sukumar and co-starring Fahadh Faasil and Rashmika Mandanna, Pushpa is about a lorry driver involved in the smuggling of red sander trees in Andhra Pradesh. The second part of the film, Pushpa: The Rule, is likely to be released this year. With other big budget films like RRR postponed, Pushpa: The Rise might rise much higher.

Telugu film star Allu Arjun on Friday expressed gratitude to his fans and well-wishers for their unending love and support as he crossed the 15 million followers mark on Instagram.

The 39-year-old actor, who is currently basking in the glory of his latest release Pushpa: The Rise, shared a picture of himself on the photo-sharing app and celebrated the milestone.

"15 M. Thank you soo much for all the love you all shower. Humbled. Gratitude Forever. And Happy Sankranthi," Arjun captioned the post.

Arjun made his debut in 2003 with Gangotri and rose to prominence in the next year with Sukumar's Arya.

In his two-decade long career, he has featured in the mainstream cinema films such as Bunny, Desamuduru, Parugu and Ala Vaikuntapuramlo.

Arjun is set to begin shooting from March for the second part of Pushpa, titled Pushpa: The Rule. He is also speculated to team up with filmmakers A R Murugodosss and Prashant Neel for their upcoming projects.
