The script was rewritten to cater to a wider audience throughout the country. If you’re wondering whether the shooting has begun or not as per the new script? Well, yes, it began in November 2022, and if everything goes as per the schedule, then the team is expected to wrap up the filming by the end of this year.
Pushpa 2 Movie Shoot Location:
Rampachodavaram and Maredumilli in the state of Andhra Pradesh, along with some locations in Kerala, are a few locations where the first part was shot. Keeping in mind the fact that part two is in continuation of part one, the movie would be shot in similar locations.
While there isn’t any official confirmation from the makers regarding the shooting schedule and locations, we know the filming of the first schedule of Pushpa part 2 was wrapped up in Vishakhapatnam, where the introduction song was also shot.
Recently, on 28 February 2023, Allu Arjun was spotted with his family in the Ranthambore National Park, where he is shooting for Pushpa: The Rule.
Star Cast of Pushpa Part 2: The Rule
If reports are to be believed, then the Premam actress Sai Pallavi has been approached for the role of Allu Arjun’s sister in the movie.
Apart from this, there aren’t any major changes in the star cast.
The main star cast remains the same, with the Megastar Allu Arjun in the role of Pushpa, Fahad Faasil as the antagonist Bhanwar Singh, and Rashmika Mandanna as Srivalli, among some of the confirmed returnees.
A few months back, in an interview, Allu Arjun shared his excitement for Pushpa: The Rule, and when he was asked if he had any updates about the movie that he could share, he said,
“I know all of you have been asking me for updates about Pushpa 2. I have a small one. If it was ‘Thaggedhe Le’ in Pushpa 1, it would be ‘Asalu Thaggedhe Le’ in Pushpa 2.”
Thaggedhe Le is a Telugu slang, which was Allu Arjun’s catchphrase in the Pushpa: The Rise, which means, ‘I will not bow down now’. Going by his words, it is most likely that Asalu Thaggedhe Le will replace the former catchphrase in the second part. However, the meaning of both phrases is the same ‘Pushpa, Pushpa Raj… Main Jhukega Nahi Sala’
He further added,
“I’m hoping everything will turn out to be positive. I’m excited; I hope that excitement touches you too.”
Well, we are excited too, Pushpa!!!!
First Glimpse of Pushpa: The Rule;
If reports are to be believed, then makers are planning on unveiling the first glimpse of the movie in the form of a teaser or a trailer for the superstar Allu Arjun’s 41st birthday on 8th April. Needless to say, this will make his birthday extra special and increase the happiness of eager fans twofold.
We are extremely sure of one thing Pushpa, being the phenomenal success it was, is extremely close to the hearts of not just the audience but also the entire team of the film. Hence they won’t leave any stone unturned in making its sequel grander and more iconic.
