Tamil Actor Turns Lead Antagonist For Allu Arjun:- Stylish Star Allu Arjun started the shoot of his next film Pushpa finally after a delay of seven months. The film directed by Sukumar happens in forests and is set in the backdrop of Sesachalam forests and is about red sandalwood mafia. The shoot of the film started in East Godavari's Maredumilli forests and the schedule will continue for a month. Rashmika Mandanna is the leading lady and the actress joined the sets of the film from day one. There have been a lot of discussions going on about the lead villain in the movie.
Sukumar's first choice was Vijay Sethupathi but he said no as the film is a pan Indian film and he as a decent image in Tamil. Bobby Simha's name was speculated but nothing was confirmed. If the latest rumors are to be believed, Tamil actor Arya has been roped in for the powerful lead villain's role. Pushpa will have some high voltage action episodes throughout and Allu Arjun plays a lorry driver in Pushpa. Devi Sri Prasad is composing the music and Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj, Anasuya and Vennela Kishore plays other important roles. Mythri Movie Makers are the producers and Pushpa releases in all the Indian languages next year.
