It is Telugu actor Allu Sirish's birthday on Sunday, but the actor says he has never been into celebrating birthdays in a big way. This year especially, the actor feels the need to be low-key due to the tough times everyone is going through. "We are going through a pandemic this year and I don't think it is in the best interest to have a big celebration. What I am doing, though, is that I will be releasing the first look of my upcoming movie. Sirish 6: Allu Sirish Shares New Poster of His Untitled Film With Anu Emmanuel (View Post).

It's been two years since I had a release and fans are looking forward to it," Sirish, who was last seen on big screen in the 2019 film "ABCD: American Born Desi Confused", told IANS. He added: "I felt the time is not right and we should stay indoors for some more time, till most of us are vaccinated and the cases come down. I was never big into birthdays but this year I felt the need to be low-key." He will mark his special day, of course, but only among close friends. Sirish 6: Allu Sirish Shares the First Glimpse of His Romantic Film With Anu Emmanuel (View Post).

"In a private capacity, I am sending a few hampers from my side to some friends in the industry because we are unable to celebrate together, and I wanted to reach out to friends. Otherwise, no celebrations this year, no fans gathering, no events -- nothing," he says. The actor has already released two pre-looks of his much talked-about next. The film also stars Anu Emmanuel opposite Sirish and is directed by Rakesh Sasi. It is being presented by Sirish's father, producer Allu Aravind.
