Allu Arjun, who is basking in the success of his latest blockbuster movie "Sarrainodu" ["Yodhavu" in Malayalam], is all praises for the Malayalam entertainment industry. Calling Mohanlal as his all-time favourite, Arjun has expressed his desire to share screen space with the superstar in the near future.

"The future of South Indian films will inevitably see the exchange of actors from different industries. So, I am hoping I get to work with Mohanlal soon," Arjun told the Times of India.

During his recent visit to Kerala, where he had gone to attend the success celebration of Boyapati Srinu-directed movie, the youth icon also opened up on his interest to be part of a direct Malayalam movie. The actor, who wishes to act in a Malayalam romantic entertainer, also said he loved movies such as "Bangalore Days," "Premam" and "Charlie."

When asked about the young stars of Mollywood, the stylish actor lauded the performance of Fahadh Faasil in Anjali Menon's "Bangalore Days," Nivin Pauly in Alphonse Puthren's "Premam" and Dulquer Salmaan in Martin Prakkat's "Charlie" and Maniratnam's "OK Kanmani."

"There's a lot of talent among them. I was completely blown away by Fahadh Faasil's acting in Bangalore Days. Nivin Pauly in Premam was just mesmerising. I am also a hardcore fan of Dulquer Salmaan's Charlie and OK Kanmani. In fact, I liked him more in OK Kanmani," the actor added.

"Yodhavu," the Malayalam dubbed version of "Sarrainodu," has been performing well at the Kerala box office by raking in almost Rs. 6.06 crore within two weeks of its release in the state. The action thriller has become the second highest grossing Telugu movie in Kerala after SS Rajamouli's blockbuster "Baahubali - The Beginning."
