MUMBAI: Marking the 14th anniversary of their iconic collaboration Allu Arjun and filmmaker Sukumar have taken to social media to commemorate their blockbuster film, Arya 2.
To celebrate the occasion, Allu Arjun shared a series of unseen snapshots from the film's making, featuring himself, Sukumar, and co-star Navdeep. The photos capture the camaraderie and creative synergy that fueled the film's success.
Allu Arjun accompanied the photos with a heartfelt caption, "14 Years of Arya2. A Film that will always be very Spl & close to my heart #14YearsForArya2." The film's release in 2009 marked a turning point in Allu Arjun's career, cementing his status as a Telugu cinema superstar.

The plot centers on three characters: Arya (Allu Arjun), Ajay (Navdeep), Arya's childhood friend, and Geetha (Kajal Aggarwal). The film was theatrically released on November 27, 2009.
Hailing from the same orphanage, Ajay and Arya, orphaned best friends, embark on contrasting journeys in life following their separation.
While Ajay finds fortune and success upon being adopted by a wealthy family, Arya takes a different course. Their paths eventually converge when Ajay employs Arya in his software company.
However, their bond is tested when they both fall for the same woman, Geetha (Kajal), who joins Ajay's company. As their affection for Geetha deepens, a rift emerges between the close friends, challenging their friendship and bringing to light unresolved issues from their past.
Amidst the emotional turmoil, Arya and Ajay must navigate their complex emotions, confront their past, and redefine their relationship with each other. The story unfolds as they grapple with love, jealousy, and the complexities of their fraternal bond.
