It is a moment of double celebration for actor Allu Arjun as his milestone of touching the seven million follower-mark on Twitter has coincided with his film ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ receiving the highest number of nominations at the South Indian International Movie Awards (SIIMA). Allu Arjun celebrated hitting seven million followers on the micro-blogging site on Wednesday, August 17. To mark the special occasion, the Pushpa fame put out a celebratory tweet thanking her online family for their constant support.
“7M…Thank you for all the love,” wrote Allu Arjun before ending her short note with a black heart emoticon. The tweet was shared alongside a monochromatic picture of the South heartthrob that saw him in a dashing formal look. He paired a black shirt with matching trousers and shoes proving ‘black can never be basic’. In addition to this, statement sunglasses, perfectly jelled hair and a rugged beard only accentuated his dapper look.
