The producers announced on Tuesday that the first part of Telugu actor Allu Arjun’s upcoming film “Pushpa” will be released nationwide on Christmas Day this year.
The multilingual action-thriller “Pushpa: The Rise” also stars Rashmika Mandanna and National Award-winning star Fahadh Faasil.
The makers had previously announced that “Pushpa: The Rise” would be released in theatres on August 13, with the sequel following in 2022.
However, due to the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the first part had to be postponed.
Mythri Movie Makers’ producers Naveen Yerneni and Y Ravi Shankar said in a joint statement that the team is excited to show the film to fans.
“‘Pushpa’ is an action-packed storey with heartfelt moments, and filming it has been a blast.” The film has already generated a lot of interest among audiences, and we’re excited to announce that the first instalment will be released this Christmas.
“We can’t wait for the fans to see it and show their unwavering support for the entire ‘Pushpa’ team.” They stated, “We have decided to release the second instalment of the film in the year 2022.”
Sukumar of “Arya” fame wrote and directed the film, which will be released in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Kannada, and Malayalam.
“Pushpa: The Rise” depicts the red sanders heist in the Andhra hills, as well as the convoluted nexus that emerges over the course of the storey of a man consumed by greed.
Faasil, who has appeared in critically acclaimed films such as “Malik,” “Joji,” “Kumbalangi Nights,” and “Super Deluxe,” plays the film’s antagonist opposite Arjun.
The film is being produced by Mythri Movie Makers in association with Muttamsetty Media.
