Actor Allu Sirish is set to make his Malayalam debut after his brother Allu Arjun. The young actor is all excited to foray into Mollywood with superstar Mohanlal's upcoming movie 1971: Beyond Borders.

Allu Sirish, who is basking in the success of Srirastu Subhamastu, took to his Twitter handle on October 22 to share his excitement. The actor says that he is glad to work with Malayalam superstar Mohanlal and at the same time, he is nervous too. He tweeted on Saturday: "Ella Malayali prekshararku namaskaram, namalku udane kanaam. Snehapurvum, Allu Sirish #hello."

The Gauravam actor added: "Excited & nervous sharing screen space with the 4 time National Award winner & legendary actor. Need your good vibes & wishes. Love, Sirish. So, I'm making my Malayalam debut in @Mohanlal sir's "1971: Beyond Borders" directed by Major Ravi, based on 71 Ind-Pak war."

1971: Beyond Borders, which was initially titled 71 War, is based on a true incident happened during the 1971 India-Pakistan war and deals with the life and friendship of two Army officials. Besides direction, Major Ravi has also written the story and screenplay for the movie. Mohanlal will be seen in three get-ups and he will play Major Mahadevan and his father Major Sahadevan.

Rana Daggubati will be seen playing a major role alongside Mohanlal in 1971: Beyond Borders, which is produced by Haneef Muhammed under the banner of Red Rose Creations. The movie is expected to go on the floors next year and it will be shot mainly in the deserts of Rajastan. In a statement released to the media, Allu Sirish says he will play a tank commander in the film.

"I'm excited to share screen space in a full length supporting role alongside legendary Mohanlal sir. I play a tank commander in the film. I was keen on making debut in Malayalam and this seemed to me perfect launch. What I loved about the film is it's not jingoistic or anti-Pakistan. It's a human drama with emotions. Going by the mood of the nation, this is the kind of film to be watched out for," Sirish says.
