Telugu star Allu Arjun is awaiting the release of Pushpa 2: The Rule, the sequel of the 2021 pan India blockbuster Pushpa: The Rise. The actor has said that there are plans to extend the franchise with a third part.

“You can definitely expect part three, and we do want to make it a franchise. We have exciting ideas for the lineup,” Allu Arjun told Variety. The actor is currently at the Berlin Film Festival. A special video of the franchise was screened. The festival will also screen Pushpa: The Rise.

Pushpa 2 is going to have a very different shade of Pushpa than what you’ve seen in ‘In Pushpa 1,’ because it is the lower end of the spectrum that you’ve seen,” he spoke about the anticipated movie.

“Till then it was playing on a regional scale, now it will play on a national and international scale,” he said about his character in the movie. “In Pushpa 1, police officer Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat, played by Fahadh Faasil, emerges as a thorn in Pushpa’s side. The conflict between them is going to escalate to a much bigger, bigger scale.”
