Interestingly, this Sukumar directorial and Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha will clash at the box office this Christmas. Earlier, Pushpa was scheduled to release on August 13. But the second wave of coronavirus delayed the shooting schedules and forced the film’s team to look for a new release date.
Produced by Naveen Yerneni and Y Ravi Shankar in association with Muttamsetty Media, Pushpa revolves around red sandalwood smuggling. It marks the Telugu debut of Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil who will be playing the antagonist in the film. The movie also stars Rashmika Mandanna, Dhanunjay, Rao Ramesh and Ajay Ghosh.
