Pushpa: The Rise follows the story of Pushpa Raj, a red sandalwood smuggler, who becomes the king of the smuggling business. The film, which has a runtime of three hours, has been receiving mixed reviews. So, the makers have decided to trim the film by a few minutes. According to reports, Sukumar has removed a romantic scene featuring Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna.
Pushpa: The Rise stars Allu Arjun, Rashmika Mandanna and Fahadh Faasil in lead roles. The second part, Pushpa: The Rule, will release sometime in 2022.
