Stylish Star Allu Arjun turned into a daily-wage lorry driver in Pushpa. For this huge transformation of a stylish star into tan make-up took him over 3.5 hours daily to get into the role – Pushpa Raj. His eyebrows, hair, moustache and even skintone have all undergone total makeover for the role.
Everyday for the shoot, it takes him about 3 hours to 3.5 hours to get ready for the role. Since Sukumar is a perfectionist, he wants a flawless and rugged Pushpa Raj. Extra care has been taken on Allu Arjun’s costumes to suit the role. It is learnt that Allu Arjun will be mostly seen in shorts and lungi in the film.
Set against the backdrop of red sandal smuggling, Pushpa is a Sukumar-mark film backed by strong content. Presently, the film’s shoot is going on in Tenkasi in Tamil Nadu. Allu Arjun’s personal trainer and his personal chef were flown to Tenkasi so that the actor’s gym regimen and strict diet don’t get affected.
The film is going to release simultaneously in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam on 13th August, 2021 on the eve of Independence Day.
