Shoot delayed

Allu Arjun’s team confirmed to HT that shooting has indeed been postponed to the second week of December now. “Allu Arjun was in the jatara get-up to shoot for a song and a fight sequence. However, the costume and the vigorous scenes gave him severe back pain. Bunny was game to continue shooting despite it but Sukumar decided to take a break instead of affecting his health further,” the source says, adding, “Shooting will pick up again once he recuperates.”

Decoding the look

The androgynous avatar Allu donned for the poster piqued everyone’s curiosity. Clad in body paint, a pattu saree, earrings, bangles and rings, it was a departure from how he was dressed in the first part of the film. The actor donned the avatar to represent Gangamma thalli, whose jatara is held in Tirupathi every year. The look is based on a lyric from Daakko Daakko Meka, which talks of animals being sacrificed for Her.

Pushpa 2 is about

Sukumar’s Pushpa: The Rise hit screens in December 2021 and fans have been waiting for a sequel ever since.
