Allu Arjun’s Pushpa is creating new records at the box office. The film was released in the theatres on December 17,2021 and it is doing absolutely great. Sukumar narrated the story in an interesting manner. Allu Arjun lived in the role. DSP scored a wonderful music. Pushpa: The Rise released in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and Hindi, the first part of the movie has collected Rs 275 crores gross in 11 days.
Allu Arjun in an interview said that, “Pushpa is a film that really pushed me to do something different. I wanted to be known as a star performer, that is my aim. People always misjudge that commercial films don’t have scope for performances. There is tremendous scope rather, which is untapped. We need to explore it.”
He further added that, “There is more scope for performance in a commercial film than an indie or in parallel cinema. In parallel cinema, your performance is scene based, while in commercial films, it is dance, action, and scene based. In Pushpa, even if I dance less, I am still in character. Before Pushpa, it was Rudhramadevi (which) is not just the usual film. It was about performance, no dance and less action.”
Allu Arjun said, “I wanted to make it as a pan Indian film because the subject is such. It is a difficult film to shoot, physically, mentally. This film has a tone of seriousness, unlike my other films. I was looking at this role as an opportunity, which nobody ever did. We are used to seeing this kind of role in Tamil cinema but not here.”
Fahadh Faasil, Rashmika Mandanna, Dhanunjay, Rao Ramesh and Ajay Ghosh acted in the prominent roles in the film.
