Vijay Sethupathi in Pushpa 2?
As per the reports, Vijay Sethupathi will be seen doing the villain’s role in Pushpa 2, he was last seen in the blockbuster Kamal Haasan’s Vikram, in which his performance as the drug lord is widely praised by the viewers and the critics. The official confirmation is yet awaited on the same. Vijay Sethupathi or Makal Selvan was approached for Part 1 also but the actor couldn’t do so due to date issues.
Allu Arjun’s performance, songs, and Allu’s dialogue Thaggede Le (Jhukega Nhi in Hindi) remained the backbone of the movie which resulted in the film’s success among the masses. As we know makers ended the film in Cliffhanger with Pushpa (portrayed by Allu) rising to prominence in the red sanders syndicate and further, the entry of menacing and corrupt new SP of Chittoor district.
While the first part explored Pushpa’s rise from coolie to an influential person in the syndicate the second part will revolve around the post-married life of Pushpa and his clash with the maniac Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat.
Srivalli and O0 Anta Oo became chartbusters within no time, earlier it was reported that DSP has already composed the music for part 2. On the 8th of April 2022, Allu to celebrate his 40th Birthday, fans are expecting an update from Pushpa: The Rule.
