The first schedule of stylish star Allu Arjun’s much-awaited Pan-India film ‘Pushpa 2’ in Odisha has been finally wrapped up after 10 days of intense shooting in the dense forests of tribal-dominated Malkangiri.

The awesome picturesque locations of Malkangiri have been grabbed by the filmmaker Sukumar for the film. The scenes shot in Malkangiri will play a crucial part in the film as ‘Pushpa’ is expected to expand his red sandalwood smuggling racket in the film.

The crew members were spotted packing up the shooting items, set supplies, different props like red sandalwood, police uniforms, weapons, and other costumes used in the film and loading on trucks as they bid adieu to Poleru village of Manyamkonda panchayat under Kalimela block where the portions of the movie were shot.

It is yet to be confirmed if the next schedule of the shooting will also be shot in other parts of Swabhiman Anchal or the crew members will leave Odisha for another location. Earlier, there were reports that the production team was planning for the next schedule in Swabhiman Anchal and exploring different locations including Hentalguda, the hanging bridge and the Saptadhara River.

However, there has been no confirmation in this regard. Earlier, there were reports that many locals, who had gone to see the shooting of the movie, bagged the golden opportunity of being part of the movie as actors. 

On the other hand, the makers are leaving no stone unturned to complete all the shooting of the movie before schedule as the movie is expected to release on December 16, this year.
