Directed by Sukumar, the action thriller will see Fahadh play the villain named Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat
The wait to see Fahadh Faasil as the antagonist in Allu Arjun’s much anticipated film Pushpa ends. The makers of Pushpa have dropped the character poster of Fahadh Faasil as Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat on social media.
In an announcement, Mythri Movie Makers, who are producing the mass entertainer, tweeted, “Meet the Villain of Pushpa. The most talented FahadhFaasil turns into menacing BHANWAR SINGH SHEKHAWAT(IPS) to lock horns with our Pushpa Raj.”
The poster is terrifying, as Fahadh looks menacing as the police officer in it. The actor has sported a different avatar, with a shaved head, something he has never tried till date. He is seen leaning on to a table of what looks like his office, while his expressive eyes look scary, to say the least. The actor is also seen holding a pistol holster around his waist.

Apart from Fahadh and Allu Arjun, the movie also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj, Dhananjay, Sunil, Harish Uthaman, Vennela Kishore and Anasuya Bharadwaj. The movie is reportedly based on red sanders smuggling in Andhra Pradesh.
