The ‘Action King’ has not changed his sobriquet in tune with the trend of Tamil cinema. But the Telugu dubbing version of his forthcoming film ‘Maasi’, directed by G Kicha, has been titled ‘Thalapathi’.
Sources have it that both the versions would have a simultaneous release and plans are on to market the film in a big way in Andhra Pradesh, as Arjun has a decent fan following in the ‘Telugu Desam’.
On the film, the director says, ““Unlike his earlier flicks where he flexes his muscles, Arjun plays an encounter specialist who weeds out his enemies through his incredible intelligence. All the same, his fans won’t be disappointed on the action front.”
“There are some unusual stunts which are performed by the actor without a body double,” Kicha says and adds: “Archana from Mumbai and Hema from Tollywood act opposite him. Pradeep Rawat plays the menacing villain.”
