Some combinations create enormous buzz and one such combo is Allu Arjun and Sukumar. While Sukumar has delivered a non-Baahubali hit in the form of Rangasthalam, Allu Arjun is fresh from the spectacular success of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. Both the movies were hits at their times. While the movie is being made, the filmmakers have announced a release date…finally!

Recently the teaser of this film was dropped and it has already started breaking records. This #IntroducingPushpaRaj video has managed to get the fastest amount of likes which is 1.2 million and has also managed to gain 44 million views. The teaser gives us a glimpse of Allu Arjun in action. Check it out here.
Here’s all you need to know about this film.
Now, they together come up with a movie titled Pushpa, which is originally made in Telugu and will be dubbed simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada. The first look poster that released a while ago caught everybody’s attention and the expectations are sky high for this flick.
The movie was originally announced with Superstar Mahesh Babu. However, due to some creative differences, they decided to part ways and Sukumar made a few tweaks to the script before it landed in Bunny’s plate.
The movie is said to have a backdrop of red sanders smuggling and a major portion of the shoot will be shot at forest areas. Sukumar has even performed a test shoot in Kerala’s Athirappily falls and the first schedule took place in Kerala before the Corona pandemic put a halt to the proceedings.
The shoot of Pushpa is ready to commence soon in Telangana’s Nallamala forest areas. The recent outing of Bunny at Kuntala waterfalls raised several eyebrows as it was closed due to COVID. However, one isn’t sure if Bunny was there to shoot for Pushpa or if it was a family outing.
If the buzz is to be believed, it is learnt that Stylish Star will have two different shades in this movie and the climax is likely to feature a major twist just like what we saw in Rangasthalam.
Geeta Govindham girl Rashmika Mandanna is paired opposite Allu Arjun for the first time and the other cast in prominent roles include Jagapati Babu, Prakash Raj, Harish Uthaman, Venella Kishore, Anasuya Bharadwaj and Anish Kuruvilla.
Vijay Sethupati was initially roped in to play an important role of an antagonist. However, citing date problems, he opted out of the project at the last minute.
While the team of Pushpa is geared up to resume the shoot, Bunny, in the meanwhile is giving us some glimpses of his latest pics in social media and is expectedly trending viral. The most talked-about is his new long curly hairdo. We will have to wait and see if that look and style is for Pushpa.
Among the crew, Sukumar retained Devi Sri Prasad as the music director and is working for the first time with cinematographer Miroslaw Kuba Brozek, who earlier worked for Nani’s Gang Leader. The editing for this flick is handled by Karthika Srinivas and the movie is produced by Mythri Movie Makers along with Muttamsetty Media.
