This concept reminds us of Chiranjeevi's State Rowdy and Mahesh Babu's Pokiri. How different 'DJ' can be from both these mass masala films? Some people even express the doubt - 'Is DJ a remake of State Rowdy?'.
In 'Race Gurram', Bunny appears as a cop for a brief period. He, however, hasn't done a full-length police role so far. May be, That's the reason he preferred doing 'DJ'. In addition, The Brahmin role offers him the scope to showcase his unseen dimension.
All the doubts would be cleared once the first look teaser of 'DJ' gets released. Fans just can't wait for #DJTeaser!

From Chiranjeevi's Marana Mrudangam to Mahesh Babu's Pokiri, the hero always appears either as a goonda or a part-time rowdy sheeter. Only in the end, it's revealed that he's a police officer, an IPS pass out, topper of the batch and etc. We've seen such Pokiri moments in many films as well.
Buzz has that even Allu Arjun is soon going to have this Pokiri moment in his upcoming film. Already the first look poster of "DJ Duvvada Jagannadam" are released and this stylish hero appears in the role of a Brahmin priest in the movie. Well, that reminded every one of Jr NTR's Adhurs Chary role. Guess what, there is an extension to this role if rumours are right.
Actually, Bunny is said to be playing the role of a serious cop who comes under the disguise of a priest to catch offenders. Whoah!! That's surely a Pokiri moment for him, isn't it? From a long time this Allu hero is desiring to be seen in a police officer role and in Racegurram, he had some partial moments as a one-day police. Seems like his dreams will be lived now with this role.
But the problems that arise in that case are this happens to be a tried and tested formula in terms of storyline. So the refreshment factor comes only from different patterned screenplay and scenes. Though Sarrainodu is a huge hit in terms of box office numbers, the film's routine plot was panned by critics. So Bunny and director Harish Shankar have to make sure that DJ will not go that way. - See more at: http://www.gulte.com/movienews/56020/Brahmin-Priest-Is-Allu-Arjuns-Pokiri#sthash.THo6WKF0.dpuf

Om Namo Venkatesaya has put an end to Dil Raju's success saga. As the film ended as colossal flop, Raju who distributed the film in Nizam estimated to be losing most of his investment.
The devotional drama chronicles the life and times of Lord Balaji's devotee Hathiram Bhava and it captures the camaraderie shared by both God and devotee. This failed miserably. Raju who's having consecutive hits like Shatamanam Bhavati and Nenu Local this year suffered set back with ONV.
Now that Dil Raju's moving on with his next Duvvada Jagannadham where Allu Arjun is seen in a priest get up, all eyes are on Bunny's DJ. Now trade is busy weighting the options and guessing whether the priest DJ save Dil Raju?
Meanwhile, Dil Raju had in the past worked with Bunny for Aarya and Parugu. Let's see what would be the result of their combo again.
After the blockbuster success of Sarrainodu last year, Allu Arjun is back with his next project Duvvada Jagannadham or DJ. The first look of the same hit the internet and boy, it promises to be an exciting ride!
DJ is the 17th film of the Telugu superstar. The film will witness Allu Arjun romance Mohenjo Daro actor Pooja Hegde. The film is being helmed by Harish Shankar, best known for directing the 2012 blockbuster Gabbar Singh starring Pawan Kalyan.
The hype for Duvvada Jagannadham is mighty strong right now. Especially, after the leaked photo of Allu Arjun from the film's sets that went viral previous day.
Produced by Sri Venkateswara Creations, Duvvada Jagannadham is a big-budget affair with ace camerman Ayananka Bose shooting the film. Bose has previously shot Kaabil, Dishoom, Student of the Year, Kites among others.
Composer Devi Sri Prasad is in charge of the music. This is the 7th time Devi Sri Prasad is scoring an Allu Arjun film. The Allu Arjun films he has previously worked on are S/O Satyamurthy, Arya, Julayi, Arya 2, Iddarammayilatho and Bunny.
According to reports, the teaser of Duvvada Jagannadham will be released on February 25, coinciding with the auspicious day of Maha Shivratri.
Allu Arjun's latest look in and as Duvvada Jagannadham has made some serious waves online. Just hours from its release, it trended online on social media and also worldwide on twitter for a while.
Sporting the shaivite namalu, pancha kattu and rudraksha, riding a Bajaj scooter loaded with vegetables, DJ's look has an endearing air to it. Zoom in on it and you see the sticker on the scooter that says, "Annapurna caterersu, pure vegetariansu" and an address of Vijayawada. However, director Harish Shankar had earlier mentioned that the movie is the story of both the states raising speculations that there is another look (or even a role) of Allu Arjun in the movie sporting a modern look from the city, Hyderabad.
The first look poster of Stylish Star Allu Arjun’s ongoing project, Duvvada Jagannadham, was out yesterday and Bunny’s striking makeover as a Brahmin boy took even his fans by surprise. Speculations on Bunny’s look for the movie have intensified since the first look’s release.
Now, according to a report published in a popular English news daily in which stylist Suparna decoded Bunny’s DJ look, Bunny will be seen as an innocent Brahmin caterer from Vijayawada who is on a larger than life mission. Bunny’s look was designed according to his character, but with some tweaking.
Giving Bunny a real and earthy look, the stylists reportedly gave him traditional white lungis with silver border instead of the usual golden lining to enhance his character’s motive. Well, that’s surely an interesting thought process. Let’s wait for the film’s release for the real surprise.
