In the media circle, it is being said that the film would resume the shooting in Aug 2022.
Recently director Sukumar in an interview told that he has a more engrossing story this time than the first part.
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.
