Casual director Sukumara had first approached Mahesh Babu to play the role of Pushpa in the film. However, the project could not go ahead due to creative differences and Allu Arjun eventually stepped in.
Speaking of the same, Sukumar had previously said during Pushpa: The Rise promotions, “The story I told Mahesh Babu was also based on red sander smuggling, but that was a while ago. Once I got out of the project, I wrote another story. I wanted the character attitude. And with Mahesh Babu, I couldn’t make him cool. He’s very honest. So the background was the same, but the story is different.”
Meanwhile, Pushpa continues its glorious run at the box office across India. The film has so far amassed over Rs 67 crore in Hindi belts and has already grossed over Rs 300 crore. The second part of the film, Pushpa: The Rule, will be released in December.
