Fahadh Faasil, the versatile superstar of Malayalam cinema, has joined the cast of Allu Arjun’s ‘Pushpa’, which is being made as a Pan-Indian movie. This is the biggest casting coupe.
By convincing a big star like Fahadh Faasil to play as the antagonist, the makers of ‘Pushpa’ have gained a big score. The film will now definitely turn red hot in the South Indian market. Allu Arjun already does have a market in Kerala. With Fahadh coming on board for this project, the film will make Bunny’s market grow further in Kerala.
The makers first roped in Vijay Sethupathi as the villain but he backed off due to a lack of dates. Later, the makers have approached several Bollywood, Kollywood, and Kannada film superstars but they couldn’t convince anyone. At one time, they have almost finalized Tamil star Arya as the villain. But luckily, now Fahadh has agreed to come on board.
It must be noted that Fahadh’s wife Nazariya is already making her Telugu debut in Mythri Movie Makers’ production, ‘Ante Sundariniki’.
