AA20 is an upcoming Indian Tollywood Telugu-language action drama film written and directed by Sukumar with Allu Arjun, Rashmika Mandanna,Vijay Sethupathi in lead roles under Mythri Movie Makers with Devi Sri Prasad scoring music.[1][2]




Initially Sukumar announced this project with Mahesh Babu as SSMB26.

Later Sukumar announced the project going ahead with Allu Arjun by making minor tweaks to the script.[3][4]


Music sittings for the film happened in September 2019, with music director Devi Sri Prasad who is the usual collabarator of director Sukumar for the music composition.[5] He chose Nani's Gangleader's cinematographer Miroslaw Kuba Brozek as DOP. After a short hiatus he chose Karthika Srinivas who last worked for director's 1: Nenokkadine for editing duties. He chose Mounika & Ramakrishna, the art directors of his last movie Rangasthalam for handling production design. [6]

Location scouting

Sukumar personally went for location scouting across Rayalaseema region for perfect locations in Seshachalam Hills as the movie plot revolves around red sanders smuggling. [7]


The film was formally launched on October 30, 2019 at 9:36 am. Allu Arjun, Sukumar, Devi Sri Prasad, Mirlosaw and producers along with Allu Aravind, Surender Reddy and Koratala Siva graced the event. [8][9]
