After its box office run, Pushpa: The Rise is gearing up to wow audiences on Amazon Prime Video. The streamer, which has secured the digital rights of the film, seems to have spared no expense in ensuring that Allu Arjun’s film gets a spot on its platform.

According to a report in India Today, the streaming giant has reportedly spent Rs 22-30 crore to secure the digital rights to the action drama.

The report mentions how it is being speculated that the digital rights of South Indian productions would start going for bigger sums after the success Pushpa has witnessed.

Pushpa The Rise is based on the illegal smuggling of red sanders wood in the Seshachalam Hills of the Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh. The film is the first of two parts, with the second part scheduled to start production sometime this year.

In addition to Allu Arjun, the film stars Rashmika Mandanna and Fahadh Faasil, marking the latter’s Tollywood debut.

The film also features Sunil, Dhananjaya, Ajay Ghosh, Jagadeesh Prathap Bandari, Anasuya Bharadwaj and Rao Ramesh. Samantha Ruth Prabhu makes an appearance in the film in a special dance number.

The film is directed by Sukumar, and it marks the director’s third collaboration with Allu Arjun after Arya and Arya 2.

Pushpa is produced under the banners of Mythri Movie Makers and Muttamsetty Media. The film was released in theatres on December 17, 2021.

Pushpa The Rise will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video from January 7, 8 PM onwards. The film will be available in the languages of Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
