Feeling very happy for you as you are coming back to meet us on screen after 2 years together. Good luck, you are going to work as usual. ‘Shakuntalam’ will release in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
Dushyant and Shakuntala love story
The film will show the love story of Shakuntala and King Dushyant from Mahabharata. According to Hindu mythology, Shakuntala was the daughter of Maneka and sage Vishwamitra, who lived in the forest with her teacher, the sage Kanva. During her time in the forest, she meets King Dushyant and the two fall in love and get married. Having their children (who later become King Bharata), Dushyanta releases them into the forest, promising to return soon. However, due to a sage’s curse, Dushyant forgets about Shakuntala until they meet again.

This marks the debut of Allu Arjun’s daughter Allu Arha as a child artist in Tollywood. He is in the role of Rajkumar Bharat.
