  • Sanjay Dutt and Janhvi Kapoor were rumoured to be a part of Pushpa 2.
  • A source close to the makers have rubbished all these rumours.

The hype for Pushpa: The Rule is so high that every other day a new rumour starts making rounds on the web. Social media is abuzz with various rumours and speculations related to Pushpa 2 and Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna fans simply do not know which one to believe. Recently there were strong reports that Sanjay Dutt has been roped in to play a crucial role in Pushpa: The Rule whereas Janhvi Kapoor will be doing an item song for the sequel.

Neither the makers nor the director Sukumar confirmed these reports even then fans had almost believed that Sanjay Dutt was the new addition to Pushpa 2 and that the Dhadak actress had replaced Samantha Ruth Prabhu for an item song. However, now a report in Deccan Chronicle has rubbished all such rumours.

Citing an unknown source the portal has said that the makers are simply unaware how and from where such rumours have stemmed up and that neither the director nor the producer ever discussed the names of the Bollywood star or Janhvi Kapoor. The source has claimed that since Sanjay Dutt has already done many movies in the South like Leo and KGF 2, his inclusion cannot be considered special for a massive project like Pushpa 2.

The source has said, “Frankly Sanjay Dutt is overexposed in the south since he is doing more films here. If they want some actor, they would rope in a bigger refreshing star, to trigger hype for the special role.” On Janhvi Kapoor doing a special item number in the sequel, the source said, “These reports are baseless again since they haven’t signed Janhvi Kapoor for a special song, although they have signed her opposite superstar Ram Charan for their other massive film since she is happening actress.”

The source has also claimed that the producers will soon decide on an actress for a special song in Pushpa: The Rule and most probably the decision will be made final by the end of this month.
