The heady combination of Mahesh and director Gunasekar team up again for `Arjun', one of the much-awaited releases of this year. The duo's earlier release `Okadu' was a blockbuster, and producer Ramesh, brother of Mahesh, is counting on another money-spinner.

"It will be a slick action film", says Mahesh, banking on `Arjun' to regain his stardom after the failure of `Nizzam' and `Naani; at the box office. Pretty Shreya is paired opposite Mahesh while noted actors Prakash Raj and Sarita play other key roles.

Mahesh describes `Arjun' as the as the costliest film ever made in Telugu."To provide more creative freedom to my director, we erected this costly set reproducing the Madurai Meenakshi Temple, one of the best works of ace art director Thota Tharani", he reveals.

The 10-films-old actor has resolved to discard `experimental' films and do films closer to his `action' image to keep his fans happy. He is confident that `Arjun' will be an ideal comeback film.

Director Gunasekar claims that the story required a `divine' character and that he had opted for Goddess Madurai Meenakshi. "The deity plays a very significant part in the story and also Madurai backdrop will look fresh", says the director known for his fascination with huge sets as in `Chudalani Undi' and `Okadu'.

Actor-turned-producer Ramesh describes `Arjun' as a `breathtaking action movie'. Whether the audience shares his view will be known after August 18, when the film will be released.
