Allu Sirish Telugu Actor

Allu Sirish

Allu Sirish is a South Indian actor whose two or more members have been involved in the film industry. His many relatives ( Chiranjeevi, Pawan Kalyan, Ram Charan) had featured predominantly in South Indian movies His elder brother is Telugu actor Allu Arjun. Getting started in Tollywood is tough for newcomers but not for one who comes from a family of the film fraternity. But it can be a huge advantage if show business runs in the family. The only thing is that the actor has to work twice hard as to prove them. He is the youngest son in his family and was born to Allu Aravind and Nirmala Allu on May 30, 1987. His father Allu Aravind is a noted film producer. He is the nephew of Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan is his cousin. Allu Sirish grew up in the shadow of one famous sibling Allu Arjun, who skyrocketed to fame and were enormously popular. It seems only natural that son of film producer Allu Arvind would seek the limelight of his own. He had a brief foray as a child artist in two films earlier. Later he returned to acting as a hero with a bi-lingual film ‘Gowravam/Gouravam’(Telugu/Tamil) which released in 2013. His second film ‘Kotha Janta’(Telugu) released in 2014.

Film fraternity is hopeful that movie fans will accept Allu Sirish as a promising newcomer. His brother Allu Arjun is very famous in Tollywood, and his movie fans would recognize him if they saw his first face in trailer or poster of a film. It is true that Allu Sirish would also be benefited from his dad’s and bother’s success. Of late, the actor Allu Sirish has teamed up with Lavanya Tripathi for an upcoming Telugu movie. Director Parasuram is also making another movie with Allu Sirish, which has been launched.
