Actor Allu Arjun is currently in Russia promoting ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ ahead of the film’s release in the country on December 8. A video clip of the actor from the airport has surfaced on social media as he gets ready for the flight. The movie crew unveiled the Russian version trailer last week ahead of the grand release.
As per the ‘Pushpa’ team, special premieres of the film were planned on December 1 and 3 in Moscow and St Petersburg, respectively. Directed by Sukumar, the movie features Arjun as a lorry driver who smuggles red sandalwood. ‘Pushpa', despite opening to mixed responses from audiences and critics alike, has managed to mint big numbers at the domestic box window.
Originally shot in Telugu, it was dubbed and released in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada. It’s the first film for Allu Arjun to have a simultaneous release in five languages.
Meanwhile, ‘Pushpa 2' shoot is expected to commence from December last week. The project went on the shooting floors last month with a look test. The film’s cinematographer Miroslaw Kuba Brozek took to Instagram recently and shared a picture from the sets. He captioned the post as the beginning of the adventure. ‘Pushpa: The Rule’, the second part will focus on the face-off between Allu Arjun and Fahadh Faasil, who was introduced as the prime antagonist towards the end of the first part. It also stars Rashmika Mandanna.
