Pushpa 2 actor Jagadeesh Bandari was arrested in connection with a case related to harassing a woman, leading to her demise.
A few days ago, news came out that Jagadeesh Bandari, who played Allu Arjun's sidekick in Pushpa was arrested by the Hyderabad cops in connection with a case related to harassing a woman, leading to her demise. Well, Jagadeesh has been behind bars and is likely to stay in for a few more weeks.
This has created new tension for the team of Pushpa as Jagadessh plays a key part in the sequel and needs to shoot for the same. Until now, the makers managed without him but as there are so many scenes featuring Jagadeesh, they are now helpless and have postponed the shoot for a few days.
We have also come to know that the makers of Pushpa, Mythri Movie Makers are trying hard to bail Jagadeesh out of this situation and are ready to spend big money. But as the case is quite serious, Jagadeesh is not getting bail.
The news is also that as Jagadeesh impressed one and all with his performance, his role in the sequel was increased and has a lot of depth in the story. A few scenes featuring a dupe were canned but things have become quite difficult now.
There is also news that the makers are trying to rope in a new actor in place of Jagadeesh and re-shoot his scenes yet again. An official confirmation is yet to be made in this regard. Pushpa 2 is one of the most awaited films and is being canned on a massive note by director Sukumar.
Rashmika Mandanna, who is high on the success of Animal plays the female lead in this film. DSP scores the music and Fahadh Faasil will be seen as the main villain along with Anasuya and Sunil. Watch this space for more updates.
