ProductionEdit

DevelopmentEdit

Post the success of Rangasthalam (2018), Sukumar narrated a script to Mahesh Babu, with whom he previously worked in 1: Nenokkadine (2014).[9] Babu, who liked the story, gave a nod to the project,[9] and was reported to start the shoot after completing Vamshi Paidipally's project Maharshi (2019).[9] In mid-April 2019, Mythri Movie Makers, which collaborated with Sukumar in their previous film Rangasthalam, officially announced the project which was tentatively titled as #SSMB26, thus marking their second collaboration with Babu and Sukumar.[10][a] The film was expected to begin in January 2019, However, in that March, Mahesh Babu walked out of Sukumar's project citing creative differences, and he confirmed this through Twitter.[11][12] The actor instead signed his next project with Anil Ravipudi titled as Sarileru Neekevvaru,[13][14] whereas Sukumar approached Allu Arjun for his next marking his reunion with the director after a decade since Arya 2 (2009),[15] Mythri Movie Makers which earlier associated with Babu and Sukumar's project also agreed to produce the venture.[16][17]

Pre-productionEdit

Sukumar described the storyline as, "The red sanders heist in the hills of Andhra is a convoluted nexus that unfurls in the course of the narrative through a coolie-turned-smuggler."[18] He personally went for location scouting across Nallamala Forest as the film is set in Rayalaseema and Nellore and the plot revolves around red sanders smuggling.[19] Since most of the shoot take place in rural backdrop, Allu Arjun was reported to master Chittoor accent for the film,[20] and the makers hired a team from Bollywood to work on his look.[20] The story was set against the backdrop of Seshachalam forest, located in the hilly region of Tirumala.[19] Polish cinematographer Miroslaw Kuba Brozek, who worked for Nani's Gangleader (2019) was signed for the film. Karthika Srinivas is performing the film's editing, whereas Mounika and Ramakrishna, the art directors of Sukumar's previous film Rangasthalam (2018) were chosen for production design.[21] Resul Pookutty is signed for the film's sound design.[22] The film's title Pushpa was officially announced on 8 April 2020, on the occasion of Allu Arjun's birthday and a poster was also released.[23] Allu Arjun plays the titular character Pushpa Raj, a red-sanders smuggler, and sported a bearded look for his role in the film.[24]

CastingEdit

Rashmika Mandanna was cast as the film's lead actress,[25] with an official announcement made on Allu Arjun's birthday (8 April 2019).[26] Mandanna in an online interaction confirmed that she will be learning a new dialect for the film, which is slightly based on the accent of Chittoor.[27][28] Vijay Sethupathi entered in talks to play the antagonist in October 2019, after working with Sukumar in the director's production venture Uppena (2020),[29][30] and was confirmed to be part of the film in January 2020.[31][32] However, in July 2020, Sethupathi left the film citing scheduling conflicts.[33] Post Sethupathi's exit, Vikram,[34] Bobby Simha,[35] Madhavan[36] and Arya[37] were reported to play negative roles in the film, but Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil was announced as the film's antagonist in March 2021, thus marking his debut in Telugu cinema.[38]

Kannada actor Dhananjay was reported to play a pivotal role in April 2020.[39] Jagapathi Babu and Prakash Raj were signed to play key roles in the film.[40][3] In November 2020, Sunil was cast in a supporting role and was present in the film's second schedule along with Harish Uthaman, and Vennela Kishore.[5] Sunil's character was reported to have grey shades in the film.[37] Though it was reported that Anasuya Bharadwaj was playing a crucial role, she later clarified that she wasn't approached for the film.[41] However, Bharadwaj joined the film shooting in April 2021.[7] In July 2021, Sritej confirmed that he was cast in the role of Pushpa Raj's brother.[8]

FilmingEdit

In July 2019, the makers planned to start the film's shoot during the occasion of Dusshera (7 October 2019).[42] However, the launch event of the film took place on 30 October 2019,[43] with a formal puja ceremony held in Hyderabad at the office of Mythri Movie Makers,[44] with the film's cast and crew being present at the event.[45][46] In December 2019, Sukumar performed a test shoot in Kerala's Athirappilly Falls.[47] After Allu Arjun's involvement in the promotions of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo (2020),[20] the makers planned to shoot the first schedule of the film in Kerala in March 2020, with Arjun joining the schedule, however, the filming was halted due to COVID-19 pandemic in India.[48]

For a 6-minute action sequence in the film, the team planned to hire action choreographers from South India, instead of opting for foreign technicians.[49] Thus, the film became a "Make In India" project, an initiative to provide employment to the workers from the Indian film industry, after some technicians faced employment crisis due to the pandemic.[50] This sequence is reported to be made a cost of 6 crore (US$840,000) and Allu Arjun has been trained intensively for this sequence.[51][49]

The makers later planned to shift the location from Kerala to Andhra Pradesh, due to restrictions in travel, in order to curb the COVID-19 pandemic.[52] In June 2020, the makers planned to resume the shoot in Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad,[53] and later planned to shoot the film at Nalgonda.[54] Post government permitted film shootings with minimal crew,[55] the makers resumed filming on 10 November 2020 in Maredumilli forest in Andhra Pradesh,[18][56] and completed within 14 days.[57] The team moved to Rajahmundry in December 2020 to shoot key sequences, but was indefinitely postponed to January 2021, as twelve crew members working in the film were diagnosed with COVID-19.[58][59] The shooting later resumed in January 2021 and the production house tweeted that two schedules at Rampachodavaram and Maredumilli was completed within February 2021.[60] The team also finished a schedule at Kerala in March 2021.[61] The dubbing works of the film have begun in April 2021.[62] The shooting of the film was put on hold due to restrictions following second wave of COVID-19 pandemic in India,[63] and Allu Arjun was also diagnosed with COVID-19 in late April.[64] The team resumed the final leg shooting on 6 July 2021,[65] with a major schedule was filmed in Secunderabad,[66] but came to a halt in 24 July 2021 when Sukumar was diagnosed with dengue fever.[67] The shoot resumed two days, after Sukumar cured from the disease.[67]
