Stylish Star Allu Arjun and Sukumar’s ‘ Pushpaa’ is shaping up at a fast pace. The movie is slated to release on August 13th. According to the latest buzz, the characterization of Allu Arjun whose name in the film is Pushpa Raj is that of an egoist. So Director Sukumar wanted to cast someone who can match that ego on the screen.
Initially, the team considered Vijay Sethupathi but he couldn’t get on board due to the issue of the dates. Later, the team of Sukumar referred Fahadh Fahsil to him. Sukumar, who was not aware of Fahadh, saw his work and was impressed. He went to meet Fahadh and decided to give a detailed 1.5-hour narration. However, to Sukumar’s surprise, Fahadh said that his wife, Nazriya, and he are big fans of Sukumar’s movie and that they love his work. So, Fahadh was inclined to accept the offer even without listening to the script. However, Sukumar still narrated the script and Fahadh listened to 20 mins of the script and decided to accept it immediately. After getting Fahadh on board, Sukumar decided to make some changes in the characterization of the villain role to include more buildup shots and show the ego that the character has. He wants to match the egoistic nature of both the hero and the villain to present an engaging duel on-screen between two similar personnel.
Pushpa will be releasing in 5 Indian languages simultaneously on 13th August 2021. Rashmika is the lead actress in the film along with Actor Sunil doing an important role with negative shades. Mythri Movie Makers is bankrolling this project in association with Mutham Shetty Media.
