Allu Arjun and director Sukumar on the sets of Pushpa 2
Allu Arjun became a pan-India star after the success of Pushpa. All eyes are now on the sequel, Pushpa 2, which will be out on August 15, 2024. There was news going around that Pushpa 2 has been postponed but Allu Arjun's team slammed the rumors and confirmed the release date.
On the other hand, there is a strong buzz in the film circles that Pushpa will also have a part 3 and plans are being made for the same. We at OTTplay have exclusively learned that Allu Arjun is keen on having the part three but director Sukumar has other plans up his sleeve.
One of the sources close to the team says, "Though Sukumar has written Pushpa 2's climax in such a way that it will leave a hook for the third part, the director feels that things can go wrong if the plot and characters are dragged way too much".
The news is once Sukumar is done with Pushpa 2, he plans to make a film with Ram Charan as the lead, and the story discussions have already begun. On the other hand, the discussions for Pushpa 3 are now on between Allu Arjun and Sukumar and we need to see if the third part will happen in the days to come.
Not many know that Pushpa was planned as a solo film but seeing the craze and span of the film, the makers announced it as a two-part film. Now, Allu Arjun wants the franchise to continue but Sukumar is not too keen and feels the third part can be made after a few years, seeing the result of Pushpa 2.
Post Pushpa 2, Allu Arjun will team up with star director Trivikram Srinivas who last made Guntur Kaaram with Mahesh Babu. This will be Allu Arjun's fourth collaboration with Trivikram and fans are excited to see what the duo are up to now. Apart from this, Allu Arjun will also team up with Animal fame Sandeep Reddy Vanga for an action drama.
For now, Allu Arjun is going all out for Pushpa 2 which is one of the most-awaited films in Indian cinema. The pre-release business has caught on like wildfire and the OTT rights to the film have been bagged by Netflix for a massive price.
Rashmika Mandanna, Fahadh Faasil, and Sunil play key roles in this film which has music by DSP. The shooting of this film is happening in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad as of now. Watch this space for more updates.
