Director Sriram Venu announced a film called Icon with Allu Arjun about a year ago. But the project failed to go on floors for various reasons. The latest we hear is that Allu Arjun decided to walk out of the project and Venu Sriram is hunting for a new hero.


Icon was supposed to be launched long back but it was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Moreover, Venu Sriram was busy with the works of Vakeel Saab until April this year. After Vakeel Saab's release, everyone thought that Icon will go on the floors soon. But that didn't happen as well.


For the last few Days, it is being heard that Sriram Venu came out of Dil Raju's production house. That means the movie lost its producer. Now, we are hearing that the Deshamuduru actor decided to drop the project for the reasons best known to him. As it is his dream project, Sriram Venu is not willing to let Icon get shelved. Thus, he is now hunting for a new actor for the movie.
