Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi was supposed to do the role of the antagonist in the much-awaited Pushpa starring Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna to be directed by Sukumar. But due to the issue of the dates, Vijay had to opt-out of Pushpa. Since then the hunt for the antagonist has been going on for the film.
Now according to the latest reports, Arya has been almost finalized for the coveted role. If you guys remember Arya was the antagonist in Allu Arjun’s Varudu too which was a huge disaster. Gunasekhar directed that fiasco called Varudu. Now the same combo is getting repeated in Pushpa which is sending jitters amongst Bunny fans.
Meanwhile, Allu Arjun has already started the shoot of the film in the Maredumilli forest region. He has shed a few kilos and underwent a physical makeover for this film which is being produced by Mythri Movie Makers.
