Pushpa is one of the most anticipated upcoming films in the Telugu film industry. Directed by Sukumar, this film features Allu Arjun in the lead role. The shoot of this movie is yet to begin. It was actually supposed to go on the floors in April but got postponed indefinitely due to the lockdown. It is already known that the film deals with the concept of red sandalwood smuggling in the forests of the Chittoor area. Most of the shoot will take place in forest areas. The makers have chosen the Maredumilli Forest to shoot the film. They are now laying new roads in the forest to enable convenient travel for the crew and also to shoot some of the scenes.
Earlier, it got reported that the makers have decided to erect sets in Hyderabad due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, it is now confirmed that the team is not shooting the film on any set.

The shoot of Pushpa will begin either in August or September. The Government of Andhra Pradesh is yet to give permission for the resumption of shoots in the state.
