focused on Allu Arjun for the character of Pusha Raj, Sukumar reveals, “I was researching for a web series and found out all I could about smuggling red sanders. When Bunny and I met to chat something clicked and I started to write the character of Pushpa Raj and the story around him.
Through her characters, Sukumar explores social prejudices and the constructs that must be eliminated. He did the same to Pushpa too. “Somehow we tend to judge or even show unsolicited sympathy towards those born to single mothers. I wanted to emphasize through my story that it is not necessary to treat someone differently just because of their parentage, or even lack of it for that matter. While the first part of the film explored this to some extent, the next part will see more Ajay, Pushpa’s brother, and explore more of the troubled dynamics that lie at the heart of this character, ”he says, giving us a preview of what’s to come.
You’ll also get to see a lot more of Malayalam cinema’s “new age” superstar Fahad Faasil, who plays the antagonist, Sukumar reveals. “I have been a fan of Fahadh Faasil since I saw Maheshinte Prathikaaram. I can’t wait to show how his character, IPS Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat, challenges Pushpa both physically and mentally, ”he adds in closing.
Pushpa: The Rise is produced by Naveen Yerneni, Ravi Shankar Yelemanchili under Mythri Movie Makers, Muttamsetty Media.
