Parugu Review: Parugu is a 2008 Telugu film written and directed by Bhaskar. Allu Arjun, Sheela, and Prakash Raj play the lead roles. Dil Raju produces the film whilst Mani Sharma scored the film soundtrack and background score. The movie premiered in Prasads IMAX on April 30. The film was dubbed into Malayalam under the title Krishna. It was dubbed into Hindi under the title Veerta The Power.
The film is remade into Oriya in 2010 as Sanju Aau Sanjana with Babusan, Parijat, and Mihir Das, in Bengali in 2010 as Shedin Dekha Hoyechilo with Dev, Srabanti Chatterjee, and Tapas Pal, and in Hindi in 2014 as Heropanti with Prakash Raj, Tiger Shroff, and Kriti Sanon.
This film is based on the elopement drama of Arjun’s cousin Srija (daughter of Chiranjeevi) with her then-boyfriend Sirish Bharadwaj. Though none of the mainstream media spoke about the co-incidence, the movie received a lot of buzz amongst the movie goers for the similarity to the real life episode of the Srija.
