Allu Arjun’s Stock Pick- A Bumper Hit Awaiting?

We have not read too many stories about Indian film stars who heavily invest in stock market. Most of them take the normal route of mutual funds investment or PMS services. Amitab Bachan was an exception to this. In-fact his experiment with direct stock market investment has given a mixed response. He had few block-blusters hits like just dial, Neuland Labs, Stampede Capital etc, few of them turned to be disastrous. Examples are  Birla Pacific Medspa and Fineotex Chemicals. You can go through his current portfolio here.

Now coming to the latest story, South Indian star Allu Arjun and his father Aravind Babu Allu bought a whooping 10 lakhs shares of Moschip Semiconductors @Rs. 49.05 through their Limited Liability Partnership firm Allure Infra Llp.
