Telugu actor Allu Arjun’s film Pushpa has opened to phenomenal numbers at the box office. Samantha Ruth Prabhu praised the actor on Instagram for his performance in the film.
Calling it an appreciation post on Allu Arjun, Samantha wrote: “A performance that just keeps you hooked. Every second was. I am always inspired when an actor is just so good that it is impossible to look away. @alluarjunonline was that for me in #Pushpa. From the accent to the one side drooping shoulder and that god damn SWAG. Phew .. absolutely stunning .. truly inspired.”
Arjun thanked Samantha for her heartfelt compliments. He wrote, “Thank you for your heartfelt compliments dear. Touched.”
Pushpa, which is set against the backdrop of red sandalwood smuggling, features Arjun in the role of a lorry driver cum smuggler.
