Allu Arjun fans from Odisha have an extra reason to celebrate as the stylish star’s upcoming pan-India film Pushpa 2 is likely to be filmed very soon in Malkangiri, once a bastion of red rebels. 

Sukumar, the director of the much-awaited film, reportedly visited Malkangiri’s Polur village under Kalimela police limits and carried out a recce of the terrain. Accompanied by his assistant director M Prasad, Sukumar visited all the shooting locations and overviewed the preparation for the shooting.

Necessary permission from Malkangiri District Collector and the Superintendent of Police for shooting will be taken on May 7, reports said. The Border Security Force (BSF) will also be requested to provide security service and cooperate during the shooting.

If everything goes as per plan, the shooting would commence very soon, reports added.

According to sources, a few important scenes will be shot in Polur and other nearby villages under the close watch of security forces. With massive mountain ridges and isolated tribal habitats, Malkangiri is the perfect background for the scenes required in Pushpa 2.

The excitement of Allu Arjun has reached another level ever since it has been reported that the shooting of the movie will be done in Malkangiri. The stylish star has a huge fan base in Odisha and the shooting of the movie in the state will only add to his craze.

However, it is not clear if Allu Arjun aka ‘Pushpa’ will be part of the scenes.

A few days back, Allu Arjun was spotted shooting for crucial scenes in the bordering areas of Malkangiri. This isn’t the first movie of Allu Arjun to be shot in Odisha. Earlier, the Pushpa actor’s blockbuster movie ‘Arya’ was also shot in Odisha’s Rayagada.
