Hyderabad, July 19 - Director Sukumar is preparing to start the shoot of the highly-anticipated Pan India movie, Pushpa - The Rule
, starring Allu Arjun, Rashmika Mandanna, and Fahadh Faasil. The movie will be the continuation of the first part, Pushpa - The Rise
, which became a huge hit at the box office.
Fahadh Faasil, who is featured towards the end of the first part, will be the center stage of "Pushpa 2" as he is playing a main negative role. Now, the actor has hinted that there could be 3rd part of the movie as well and he has been asked to prepare for that.
During a recent interview, Fahadh Faasil revealed that the makers had originally planned to complete the film in just one part, however, the makers later decided to split it into two parts. Revealing further, the "Vikram" actor said that during his recent talk with Sukumar, he has been asked to prepare for the third part as well because the director has enough material the take the story forward.
Director Sukumar has taken enough time to relook at the script of "Pushpa 2" after the first part became a huge commercial success. "Pushpa 2" will reportedly have one more villain and reports say that the makers have approached Vijay Sethupathi to play that role. Going by Fahadh Faasil's words, it looks like "Pushpa - The Rule" will be more like a confrontation of egos between his and Allu Arjun's role rather than the typical hero and villain story.
The movie is produced by Mythri Movie Makers and Muttamsetty Media. The second part will release in the second half of 2023.
