But here is the update. The screenplay is now being finalized by director Sukumar and has been modified to include one major Bollywood A-lister, preferably one of the Khans or Ajay Devgn, if not somebody else.
The sequel would not only have far superior production values than the first film, the sequel’s budget is almost twice what it was for the first film.
There were rumours of one Bollywood actor (Arjun Kapoor) playing the villain in Pushpa 2. This was a baseless, promotional, idle talk. Fahadh Faasil is the archvillain in the sequel to Pushpa.
But yes, one major Bollywood A-lister will join Allu Arjun in Pushpa 2. Sources say the A-lister will be seen in an extended cameo, like Salman Khan with Chiranjeevi in the recent Telugu film Godfather.
