The most awaited sequel is all set to hit theaters on August 15 2024. While Pushpa: The Rise was released in December 2021, around a time when people were skeptical about going back to theaters. To a large extent, the film can be credited with bringing the audience back to the silver screen
For the unversed, the story of Pushpa is set in the 1990s, and tells the tale of the red sandalwood mafia. It told the story of how Pushpa, played by Allu Arjun, rises through the ranks as a smuggler. It also involves a romantic angle between him and Srivalli played by Rashmika Mandanna.
Everything seemed to be going well, but that was until Fahadh Faasil’s character Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat took charge as the SP of the region. After a heated altercation between the two characters, the film ended with Pushpa forcing the SP to strip, saying that he was nothing without his uniform, while Pushpa on the other hand, was a self-made man.
The film ended on a cliffhanger with the Fahadh Faasil character swearing revenge on Pushpa, and fans have been eagerly waiting to know what would follow the story.
Pushpa 2 would be the first film that Allu Arjun has starred in, in over two years, the previous film being part 1 of Pushpa.
