Allu Arjun and director Sukumar’s third combo ‘Pushpa’ is going to be a Pan India movie that will be released in five languages. Rashmika Mandanna is paired opposite Allu hero for the first time in which he plays the role of red sandalwood smuggler as ‘Pushpa Raj’.
There is much buzz on social media over Tamil hero ‘Arya’ playing the antagonist in the movie. Sources say that he is confirmed for the role. Earlier, Arya also played a villain in Allu Arjun’s ‘Varudu’ a decade back. Actually, Vijay Sethupathi was preferred by the makers for the role but it did not materialize as the busy actor couldn’t adjust the dates.
The shooting of ‘Pushpa’ was going at a rapid pace until recently and it had to be stopped as few in the unit contracted with Covid-19. However, the makers are planning to resume the shoot as soon as possible.
Once this movie is wrapped up, the stylish star will join director Koratala Siva’s movie which will be launched after Pushpa. The makers are yet to announce Arya’s entry in Pushpa officially.
