Allu Arjun’s pan-India blockbuster Pushpa 2 – The Rise has whetted the Telugu superstar’s appetite for a wider spectrum of viewership. The Pushpa sequel would not only have far superior production values than the first film, the sequel’s budget is almost twice, what it was for the first film.
One now hears of a Bollywood A-lister joining Allu Arjun in the cast. A source from Hyderabad informs me, “There were rumours of one Bollywood actor (Arjun Kapoor) playing the villain in Pushpa 2. This was a baseless promotional idle talk. Fahadh Faasil is the arch villain in the sequel to Pushpa. But yes, one major Bollywood A-lister will join Allu Arjun in Pushpa 2.”
Sources say the A-lister will be seen in an extended cameo, like Salman Khan with Chiranjeevi in the recent Godfather. The likelihood of Salman joining Pushpa 2 is not discounted.
