In what can be a casting coup, the makers of Pushpa are planning to rope in talented actress Sai Pallavi for an important role. It is strongly buzzed that director Sukumar is looking for a prominent actress to play Allu Arjun’s sister in the film and the search seems to have ended with Sai Pallavi.
The role is going to have a lot of significance in the film and Sukumar is keen on having a talented girl like Sai Pallavi who would add a lot of value to the character. However, the moot question is whether Sai Pallavi would agree to it?
Sai Pallavi is busy as the female lead. She is in talks to play Pawan Kalyan’s wife in Ayyappanum Koshiyum Telugu remake and she quoted a whopping Rs 2 Crore for the role. Given this, it needs to be seen how much Sai Pallavi would demand from the makers of Pushpa if approached.
Meanwhile, Pushpa has Rashmika Mandanna as Allu Arjun’s romantic interest. Set against the Seshachalam forest backdrop, the film deals with the burning issue of red sandalwood smuggling.Allu Arjun will be seen as Pushpa Raj, a lorry driver. Pushpa shoot, which was halted following a Covid-19 outbreak among its crew, is now resuming it from tomorrow at Rajahmundry’s Maredumilli.
