‘Pushpa,’ Rashmika’s first film with Allu Arjun, will hit theaters on December 17. In this chat, she discusses the much-anticipated film. (Sunil, Fahadh Faasil, Anasuya Bharadwaj, Dhanunjaya, Rao Ramesh, and others star in the movie)
Srivalli is a fun-loving lady. While others are awestruck by Pushpa Raj, she is unafraid of him. For numerous scenes in ‘Dear Comrade,’ I didn’t wear make-up. The de-glam look in the instance of ‘Pushpa’ took a lot of effort. It was like doing four films for the team, as Bunny sir mentioned at yesterday’s Pre-release event.
I had a good chemistry with Bunny sir, which I’m hoping the viewers will enjoy. He is a hard worker with a strong work ethic. He’d jokingly refer to me as ‘Crushmika,’ and I’d be astonished.
Throughout the filming of the movie, Bunny sir had been a huge supporter for me. When I expressed some doubts, he reassured me by claiming that I was making a valid choice. It took away my self-doubts. At a period when I was still learning Telugu, I had to learn Chittoor slang. As a result, the character posed a significant challenge.
‘Pushpa’ is a one-of-a-kind film in terms of rawness and technical features. A film like this has never been done before. And it will never be produced again. Sukumar sir had given his best for the movie.
I loved working with Bunny sir on a track like ‘Saami Saami.’ Samantha garu, on the other hand, is a superstar in her own way, and I am delighted that she has performed her first special song.
When the teaser for ‘Pushpa’ was out, I was on the set of my Hindi film ‘Goodbye.’ Everyone on set became enthralled with what I was seeing. ‘Pushpa’ has sparked a lot of interest in Mumbai. Bunny, sir, is eagerly awaited there.
‘Goodbye’ and ‘Mission Majnu’ are my first two Hindi movies. The latter’s production work has been completed The former is pending shoot. For ‘Goodbye,’ I am glad that I got an opportunity to work with Amitabh Bachchan sir.
