Stylish star Allu Arjun is all thrilled over the huge success of his brother Allu Sirish's latest outing "Srirastu Subhamastu" at the box office, and he is thankful to all the people who watched and made it a hit.

"Srirastu Subhamastu" has been made with a small budget of Rs. 7.50 crore by Allu Aravind under his banner Geetha Arts. The movie has fetched Rs. 3.25 crore from its satellite rights. Allu Aravind himself distributed the moive in most of the areas. The Parasuram-directed film has collected approximately Rs 7 crore at the worldwide box office in the first weekend and earned over Rs. 4 crore for the distributors.

Producer Allu Aravind is delighted over the huge success of "Srirastu Subhamastu" at the box office and he held a thanks-giving function in Hyderabad on Monday evening. His son Allu Arjun, who is basking in on the huge success of "Sarrainodu", attended the event as the chief guest. Addressing the media, he expressed his happiness over the success of the movie on the occasion.

Allu Arjun was all praises for director Parasuram and his brother Allu Sirish for their dedication. "I thank one and all for making the film a hit. I could sense positive vibes from the very beginning of the film. I have good knowledge in judging scripts. I had seen determination and dedication in director Parasuram's work when I watched him several times at our production office," said the stylish star.

"I had seen Sirish's dedication, working late nights regularly from the past one year. Firstly, the title- Srirastu Subhamastu created interest in me. Then, I felt wow when I watched the trailer. Finally, when I saw rushes, I had decided the movie is going to be a hit, but the range was never on my mind," added the actor.

Allu Arjun lauded the performances of Lavanaya Tripathi, Ali and Rao Ramesh. "Usually, my wife doesn't like any heroines. But she liked Lavanaya Tripathi. That's may be because she hasn't acted with me so far. As my wife liked Lavanya's characterization, I have concluded that every girl will relate to this character," he said.

"Ali gave good support to Sirish. I used to sing one song always when I see Rao Ramesh gaaru- 'Ee Naati Ee Bandha Menatido...'. My grandfather Allu Ramalingaiah gaaru and his father Rao Gopal Rao had acted together in several films. I and Sirish are continuing the relationship which is a very good thing for us," the "Sarrainodu" star added.

Meanwhile, Allu Arjun thanked director Parasuram for giving a break for his brother. "I strongly believe that a film can be successful if and only if direction craft excels. This film was prestigious to our entire family. We felt like it is debut film for Sirish. I on behalf of my entire family thank Parasuram for taking the responsibility to provide the first break for Sirish," he said.

"Perhaps, my dad and my brother are two reasons for me to come for this function today. But, the sole reason for me coming to the event is that my brother has scored first success. My dad has seen many successes. In fact, he is the most successful person as a producer in the country. The way my dad worked for this film, I thought how responsible I should be with my son after 20 years," said Allu Arjun while speaking at the event.
