Also starring Allu Arjun and Fahadh Faasil, the action thriller is directed by Sukumar
With every passing day, the anticipation around Allu Arjun’s action thriller Pushpa goes up a notch. The latest update from the makers is Rashmika Mandanna’s character poster.
The makers of the film took to social media to share the poster featuring the actress, who squats in front of a mirror and seems to be putting an earring on. She seems to be in a rural setting, without any glamour added to her character. Yet she manages to impress in this still.
Rashmika will play Srivalli, the love interest of Allu Arjun’s Pushpa Raj. Her character is someone who even melts the fierce Pushpa’s heart.
Pushpa is an action thriller that will tell a story based on red sanders smuggling in Andhra Pradesh. Rashmika and Allu Arjun will play a married couple.
Pushpa will come out in two parts, and the first part is titled Pushpa: The Rise.
The film is written and directed by Sukumar, who has previously worked with Allu Arjun in movies such as Arya and Arya 2.
The cast also includes Fahadh Faasil, Prakash Raj, Jagapathi Babu, Harish Uthaman and Anasurya Bharadwaj in key roles.
With music composed by Devi Sri Prasad, the mega budget project will be released across the country in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi.
Rashmika was last seen in Bakkiyaraj Kannan’s action drama, Sulthan. The actress has a number of movies in the pipeline, and is currently working on her Hindi language debut, Mission Majnu, with Sidharth Malhotra.
