Creative director Sukumar after the super successful Rangasthalam has struggled to finalize his next. His project with Mahesh Babu didn’t work out. He then teamed up with Allu Arjun for the movie Pushpa which has been based on the red sandalwood smuggling in the Chittoor district area.
Based on the backdrop, Kerala forests have been chosen as the area best for the shootings. Then the lockdown happened and the plans were wasted. Sukumar and the team have thought about choosing alternative locations. They have considered Vikarabad forests and the forest area in Rampachodavaram, East Godavari district.
However, it is said that Sukumar and Bunny have come to the conclusion that Kerala forests are the best suitable locations for the shoot. Scouting of the locations has already been completed and as per the latest update, the shoot will start very soon.
Rashmika Mandanna has been finalized as the heroine in the movie.
