Malayalam star Fahadh Faasil will make his Telugu debut in Sukumar’s much-anticipated film Pushpa, in which he will face off against Allu Arjun. The actor recently joined sets of the film a few days ago to shoot for his role as the antagonist of the film.
Sharing his first-look on social media, the makers introduced him as Bhanwar Singh Shekawat (IPS). “Meet the #VillainOfPushpa. The most talented #FahadhFaasil turns into menacing BHANWAR SINGH SHEKHAWAT(IPS) to lock horns with our #PushpaRaj #PushpaTheRise #ThaggedheLe @alluarjun @iamRashmika @Dhananjayaka @aryasukku @ThisIsDSP @resulp @adityamusic @MythriOfficial”.
The poster sees him in a bald look, dressed in a police uniform and looking intensely at the camera in a police station. The actor will be seen in a look and character he has never played before. So will Allu Arjun, who plays the role of Pushpa Raj in the film that will release in two parts. He will play a coolie turned red sanders smuggler and both his looks from the film have already been released.
Produced by Naveen Yerneni and Y Ravi Shankar in association with Muttamsetty Media, Pushpa revolves around red sandalwood smuggling. Rashmika Mandanna plays the female lead in the much-waited project.
Pushpa: The Rise, the first part of the film, is slated to hit screens in December 25 in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi. This Sukumar directorial is all set to clash with Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha at the box office.
