Meanwhile, Allu Arjun is currently working on Pushpa 2 aka Pushpa: The Rule. It was earlier said that the film is likely to hit theatres in December 2023. However, a report by Pinkvilla claimed earlier this year that Pushpa 2 is unlikely to release anytime before May 2024. The entertainment portal claimed that the film’s director Sukumar wants to leave no stone unturned to bring the ‘best cinematic experience’ for the audience.
