The first part of Allu Arjun’s Pushpa, Pushpa: The Rise, which was released in December 2021, was made on a huge budget, and it was a major risk, all things considered, as it would mark the pan-Indian debut of Allu Arjun, along with director Sukumar’s pan-Indian debut. There were many doubts expressed about the performance of the movie, considering that this actor-director duo had never before attempted anything on the scale of Pushpa. Despite all those fears, Pushpa: The Rise became a massive success across the country, turning out to be one of the highest grossers of the year.
With the success of the first part, plans were immediately put in place to make the second part much bigger, with the second part currently scheduled to release in 2023. The shooting for the second part is expected to begin sometime in August, and the latest reports suggest that the budget for the second part has been inflated beyond proportions.
The second part of the film is reportedly going to be made on a budget of not less than 200 crores, with Allu Arjun and Sukumar said to be taking home huge remunerations, which reportedly sums up to 100 crores. With such an inflated budget, it is to be seen whether the movie is gambling unnecessarily, or if it would be able to make back its investment.
