'Pushpa: The Rule' to get unexpectedly delayed!
Recently, the makers made announcement inviting male, female and children across all ages for auditions. The audition was held in Tirupati for three days. It then seemed the makers were gearing up for shooting soon.
While many got excited after the buzz surfaced claiming inclusion of Vijay Sethupathi, here is something that may disappoint fans of Allu Arjun.
As Allu Arjun is on a vacation with his family, the makers will go for shooting after he returns. However, the recent reports have raised eyebrows and it is speculated that Pushpa 2 shooting will get unexpectedly delayed and so will the release.
As per the reports, Telugu film producers are contemplating to stall shooting of movies from August 1 in a bid to "restructure the industry" as production costs have mounted several fold while theatrical revenues slid to low levels owing to COVID-19.
Several producers held meetings in Hyderabad and decided to resort to stern action to set things right for the industry's survival.
"Theatrical revenues, except for blockbuster movies like RRR, KGF-2 and one or two others, have fallen to an abysmal low of 20 per cent. This has hit the industry hard, which was already reeling under the COVID impact. Everyone is now worried about the sustainability of the industry in such a scenario," PTI quoted a top producer as saying.
The producers have come together to devise ways to restructure the entire industry to ensure its survival, he added.
"We will have further talks in the next few days and arrive at a final decision on the way forward," the producer said.
Well, if such thing happens, the shooting of Pushpa certainly would get delayed. Fans need to wait to get clarity over it until the producers come up with their final decision and Allu Arjun comes back from his vacation.
