Stylish Star Allu Arjun and Sukumar are working together for the third time. After Arya and Arya 2, they are now coming up with a new movie titled Pushpa. Pushpa initially had Vijay Sethupathi on board but the Tamil actor later chose to walk out of the movie. Vijay Sethupathi's exit erupted a huge discussion on social media that the makers failed to honor his remuneration requirement but the actor finally opened up on the same in a recent Tamil interview to put the facts forward.
Vijay Sethupathi marked his debut with the film Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and immediately did Uppena. For the same producers, he signed Pushpa. But, with the film undergoing delays, Vijay Sethupathi realized that he had other commitments with which he might face a clash of dates. Realizing it beforehand, Vijay Sethupathi decided not to go ahead and informed the team. Thus, on mutual consent, the actor came out of the project. Vijay refuted the rumors of remuneration.
Rashmika Mandanna is the leading lady of the movie. Jagapathi Babu, Bobby Simha, Raj Deepak Shetty, and others are also a part of the film. Devi Sri Prasad is the music director for the film. Mythri Movie Makers bankrolls the movie for which the shoot will resume soon.
