‘Pushpa’ is undoubtedly one of the most exciting projects in Tollywood right now. Based on the smuggling of red sanders in the Nallamala forest region, the film is a rustic rural drama where protagonist Allu Arjun will be seen as a lorry driver Pushparaj. Star director Sukumar is making this film on a massive budget and it is going to be released in two parts as per sources. Every small update from this film is going viral which explains its craze.
The shooting has been temporarily kept on hold due to the second wave and insiders claim that around 80% of shooting required for the first part has been wrapped up already. Interestingly, the makers filmed 10% of the second part too. After the second wave comes down, the makers are reportedly planning a 25 days schedule that features the main cast including Allu Arjun, Fahadh Fasil and others. With this schedule, the entire shooting for the first part will be completed as per the reports.
News is that the team planned to release the film in two parts long back as the story cannot be narrated within 150 minutes. Rashmika Mandanna is the leading lady while Sunil, Anasuya, and others play crucial roles in this flick bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers. The first part of ‘Pushpa’ is expected to release during the Dusshera season.
