Makers of Pushpa to spend Rs 6 crore for a 6-minute long action sequence!
Recently on Allu Arjun’s birthday, it was announced that he would be teaming up with director Sukumar for a mass entertainer titled ‘Pushpa’. The film’s first look poster that had Allu Arjun in a rugged, local look had grabbed attention. It is said that the film revolves around the smuggling of red sanders in the Tamil Nadu-Andhra Pradesh border. Though the makers are yet to announce the cast, it is widely reported that Vijay Sethupathi will be playing the villain role. Unconfirmed reports suggest that the film has Allu Arjun playing a lorry driver and Vijay Sethupathi as a forest officer.
Shoot was supposed to kick-start this month but due to the lockdown, the makers had to stall their plans. They are currently working on the pre-production. Interestingly, the team is planning to film a high voltage action sequence right after shoot begins. National award winner Peter Hein will be choreographing this 6-minute chase scene which alone will cost up to Rs 6 crores. The two leads, Allu Arjun and Vijay Sethupathi are expected to feature in this segment.
‘Pushpa’ has Rashmika Mandanna as the heroine. Prakash Raj, Jagapati Babu, Harish Uthaman, Vennela Kishore, Anasuya Bharadwaj, Anish Kuruvilla and many others are part of the supporting cast. Devi Sri Prasad is composing the music and Polish cameraman Miroslaw Kuba Brozek handles the camera. The movie will be releasing in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada.
