Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna starrer ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ became a pan-India phenomenon in just a few days after storming the cinemas in a record-breaking manner.
On the work front, Rashoo is all set for her Bollywood debut. As per the latest info, she is busy in the dubbing session of her first Hindi flick 'Goodbye'. On the other hand, she is busy shooting for 'Animal' opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Moreover, Rashmika will also be seen in the most anticipated sequel of 'Pushpa' and she has signed two more projects including 'Mission Majnu' with Sidharth Malhotra, and 'Varisu' opposite Vijay Thalapathy.
A source close to the actor reveals: "Rashmika has been currently working on a jam-packed schedule with the shoot of her upcoming films. Right now, she is in Mumbai, currently shooting for 'Animal' in the city."
According to several media reports, the actor now has been approached for a role in the film's second part.
Though the movie went on to garner massive appreciation, the worldwide box office collection couldn't reach to Rs 200 crore mark. However, if the report of adding Vijay Sethupathi on board is to be believed, the sequel may script records with greater box office collection.
Pushpa 2 producer recently confirmed that Rashmika Mandanna's Srivalli will definitely be alive in the sequel.
It is being said that director Sukumar wants to cut down Rashmika Mandanna’s role and focus entirely on Pushparaj, played by Allu Arjun just like Prashant Neel's KGF 2.
Be it Srivalli or Saami or Oo Antava, the songs from the first part of Pushpa has driven many crazy. Social media platforms got flooded with different videos. However, on Saturday, a video was retweeted by Pushpa's twitter handle in which two kids are seen performing on 'Saami Saami' song.
Allu Arjun's Pushpa: The Rise reportedly focuses on the expansion of Pushpa as a smuggler and includes a climax leading to Srivalli's death.
As per the latest updates, the makers are now starting to work on scheduling the shooting part.
The colossal success of SS Rajamouli's RRR and Neel's KGF 2 has created pressure on the director. While RRR and KGF 2 influenced a vast audience and turned cash-churner for the makers, Sukumar has opted for adding more mass elements that will appeal to both South and North audiences in a big way.
As per reports, the makers of Pushpa 2 are aiming for a Summer 2023 release for which the film's crew are gearing up to shoot in July this year.
Rashmika Mandanna has shared a heartfelt note on the success of the movie along with a cute pic of her on Instagram.
If media reports are to be believed, Rashoo has demanded a fat paycheck for the second part of Pushpa.
Even as the makers of Pushpa are busy wrapping the first part of the movie, buzz is that Sonu Sood has been approached for the second part of the movie.
