New Delhi:

Allu Arjun’s 2004 film Arya completed 17 years of its release today. Arya was Allu Arjun’s breakthrough in the Tamil film industry and hence the occasion is indeed special for him. On Friday, Allu Arjun posted a heartfelt note on Twitter while remembering the 2004 movie. He tweeted, “17 years of Arya today” and posted a picture on the micro-blogging platform in which we see him as Arya the college student, a role he played in the movie. Allu Arjun as Arya can be seen holding a red rose. In his note, Allu Arjun called Arya, the “greatest miracle” of his life.

Quoting the lines from the song Feel My Love from Arya, Allu Arjun shared that the audience loved when he had said – ‘Feel my love’. He called this line “golden words” in his tweet. We are guessing that the actor was probably talking about the reaction of the audience in theatres during the release of Arya back then.

“It’s 17 years of Arya today. It is the single most changing experience of my life. It’s still the greatest miracle in my life. LOVE from the audience started showering on me after I said those golden words, “Feel my love,” he tweeted.

The Arya actor also shared another note on Twitter while expressing gratitude for his fans. In his statement, he remembered Sukumar, Dil Raju, Devi Sri Prasad and R Rathnavelu, who worked as the director, producer, music composer and cinematographer in the 2004 film respectively. The statement read, “This Movie changed the lives of soo many people. It changed my course as an actor, Sukumar garu’s life as a director, DIL Raju garu’s life as a producer, DSP’s life as a Musician, Rathnavelu garu as a DOP, Bunny Vasu as Distributer then and many, many more Lives. We all the soo thankful to this one magic that came into our lives called ARYA We all will always cherish this as our greatest milestone in our lives. Thank you! Gratitude forever (sic),” he added.

Allu Arjun, who has been recovering from COVID-19 at home, also watched Arya on the occasion after the gap of “13 years.” Nostalgic Allu Arun posted a glimpse of his movie time on Twitter and wrote, “Watching Arya after 13 years almost. Every shot has taken to back to those times. Nostalgia.

Take a look at the video here:

Apart from Allu Arjun, Arya also featured Anuradha Mehta and Siva Balaji. Allu Arjun as Arya was paired opposite Anuradha, who was cast as Geethanjali, his love interest in the film. Allu Arjun played the role of a happy-go-lucky student Arya who falls in love with his college mate Geethanjali. Siva Balaji played the role of Ajay, a spoiled brat.

The film received a positive response at the box office back then.
