According to the latest report, Fahadh Faasil will join the sets of rustic actioner Pushpa in the month of August. The sources close to the makers of Pushpa revealed that Sukumar is prepping for a major schedule and he has planned some crazy confrontation scenes of Allu Arjun and Fahadh Fassil in this schedule.
