After the stupendous success of Ala Vaikunthapurramloo, Allu Arjun has teamed up with director Sukumar for his next film. Titled Pushpa, this film is being made simultaneously in five different languages. This will be the first pan-Indian film of Allu Arjun. Meanwhile, it is being reported from the past few days that Vijay Sethupathi is playing a key role in the movie. It was also stated that Vijay will essay the role of a police officer in the film. The latest grapevine suggests that Vijay got replaced with another talented Tamil actor Bobby Simha.
According to the sources, Vijay was unable to sign the film. Thus, the makers started looking out for other options. Finally, it seems that they have zeroed in Bobby Simha to essay that role. An official confirmation will be out after the film goes on floors. The shoot of Pushpa was actually supposed to start by now, but it got pushed due to the ongoing lockdown. It will start rolling once the situation gets back to a normal state.
Pushpa's first look got released earlier this month on the occasion of Allu Arjun's birthday. The posters got a rave response from the audience. The story of Pushpa revolves around the red sandalwood smuggling. Allu Arjun will play the role of a smuggler in it. He will also speak in the Chittoor accent for this role. Rashmika Mandanna is playing the female lead role in this movie. Pushpa is being produced by Mythri Movie Makers. Devi Sri Prasad is composing the music for this film.
