The Kannada star Dhananjaya will collaborate with Allu Arjun for the film Pushpa. The actor revealed his character poster on his 35th birthday much to the excitement of his fans. Pusha is directed by Sukumar and is a subject of many discussions on social media as it marks the first collaboration of Allu Arjun with Rashmika Mandanna and Fahadh Fassil who play lead roles in the film.

The Sandalwood actor who plays ‘Jolly Reddy’ in the film is seen cladded in black with a jasmine garland wrapped on his wrists. The actor is quoted in Filmibeat as saying, “Filmmaker Sukumar had called about a particular character. I am a big fan of his. It is a good story and I play a major role.” The news has become the new talk of the town, about a major Kannada actor collaborating in a Telugu project with Allu Arjun. The actor also said that director Sukumar praised him for his performance in Bhairava Geetha. Bhairava Geetha also marked the actor’s Telugu debut.

He was last seen in a supporting role in the Puneeth Rajkumar starring Yuvarathnaa. The actor has five completed projects waiting to be released. He is also making his debut in the Tamil film industry with Paayum Oli Nee Enakku. He is mostly known for his hit movie Bhairava Geetha, a bi-lingual movie that was jointly written by Ram Gopal Varma and Ram Vamsi Krishna.

The Allu Arjun project is set to be two-part with the central theme focusing on the smuggling of sandalwood in Rayalaseema. The first part is titled The Rise-Part I. Fahadh Fassil joined much later on the sets and is rumoured to play the antagonist. The movie is set to hit the theatres during Christmas this year.
