On the eve of Allu Arjun's birthday, ‘Pushpa 2’ makers release a mind-blowing first look and video glimpse
It’s ‘Icon Star’ Allu Arjun’s birthday tomorrow, and the makers of his upcoming film 'Pushpa 2: The Rule' just made it extra special for the fans by releasing a glimpse video and AA's first look as Pushpa Raj from the sequel. It reminded everyone of the popular dialogue from the film, which translates as “Pushpa isn't a flower, He's Fire!”.
Sharing the first look on social media, the makers wrote, "Happy Birthday to Icon Star @alluarjun ❤ If his RISE was imperious, his RULE will be epic ❤️🔥𝗣𝗨𝗦𝗛𝗣𝗔'𝗦 𝗥𝗨𝗟𝗘 𝗕𝗘𝗚𝗜𝗡𝗦 💥."
In the poster, AA is seen in a completely new avatar, all decked up dramatically in a saree and with gold jewellery on. Wearing a garland of lemons, he's seen holding a gun in one of his hands and standing in Pushpa Raj's signature pose. His non-binary appearance, in a way, makes us rethink the notions of masculinity and feminity. However, the first look is based on an inspiration from Tirupathi's famous ‘Gangamma Jathara’ (Gangamma festival / fair ), where men dress up as the Goddess ‘Gangamma’, who is celebrated for her courageous act of slaying a demonic and lecherous local chieftain, as a tribute. The local festival has a history of over 350 years.

Directed by Sukumar, it is the second installment of the pan-Indian blockbuster, Pushpa: The Rise (2021). The prequel narrates the story of a labourer's rise in the dark world of red sandalwood smuggling. Apart from Allu Arjun, actors Rashmika Mandanna and Fahadh Faasil will also reprise their roles in Part 2 as Srivalli and DSP Bhanwar Singh, respectively. The film is expected to release in early 2024.
