Nivetha Thomas signs a biggie?

Allu Arjun’s next release is Pushpa.The latest buzz around the film is that actress Nivetha Thomas, who was last seen in Rajinikanth’s Darbar, has been roped in to play an important role in the film.

Sources say that Nivetha Thomas will play Allu Arjun’s love interest and her role will add a lot of value to the script. The shoot of the film is likely to begin post the coronavirus crisis. Rashmika Mandanna, who is also a part of the project, will play the role of a forest officer.

A few days ago, there were reports that Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty has been approached to play the antagonist in the film. The makers had apparently met Suniel Shetty in Mumbai in January and narrated him the script.

Directed by Sukumar, Pushpa is touted to be an action entertainer. The film has music composed by Devi Sri Prasad.
