Pushpa 2 producer Y Ravi Shankar confirms that the film will roll in Hyderabad.
Allu Arjun, Rashmika Mandanna and Fahadh Faasil’s Pushpa 2 is one of the most awaited films. In an earlier conversation with Pinkvilla, producer Y Ravi Shankar had informed that they will start shooting for the sequel post the strike in the Telugu film industry ends. We now have an exciting update on this upcoming Sukumar directorial. We have learnt that the pre-production work on Pushpa 2 has begun in full swing, with its leading man doing a look trial recently. They start shooting for the film this month.
When asked Y Ravi Shankar if Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna will have a new look in Pushpa 2, here’s what he had to say. “See, they are trying different things and it has got locked. Yesterday and the day before yesterday they did it with Allu Arjun and Preetisheel (Singh Dsouza, ace make-up and prosthetic look designer). Preetisheel worked for part one also. Definitely (the look) will be rustic. The look will be the same as in part one, (but) little bit of changes will be there,” shares the filmmaker.
Further talking about the shoot commencement, the producer informs, “Probably from the 22nd (September) or so we will start shooting. We will start in Hyderabad.” Meanwhile, recently there were reports that Sai Pallavi will be a part of Pushpa 2. However, Y Ravi Shankar denied the news. “No, that is not true,” he kept it short.
Furthermore, in an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla earlier, Allu Arjun had expressed his excitement for Pushpa 2. “Genuinely I’m very charged up. I am very enthusiastic to shoot it because I am believing that we can give much more in part 2. Now they have set the base with part 1 and we have an amazing opportunity to explore the best in part 2, we all are in a mindset to give our best,” the actor had said.
