Not Allu Arjun but Mahesh Babu was Sukumar’s first choice for Pushpa: The Rise

en Bollywood News Not Allu Arjun but Mahesh Babu was Sukumar’s first choice for Pushpa: The Rise

Every role has its own destiny. Ashutosh Gowariker’s Lagaan was meant to go to Aamir Khan which is why Abhishek Bachchan rejected it not once but six times. Now that Pushpa: The Rise is a phenomenal success it would be safe to say that we cannot imagine any other star-actor but Allu Arjun in lead role.

And to think that the original choice for Pushpa was another Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu. According to sources in Hyderabad director Sukumar was keen to cast Mahesh Babu and approached him more than once.

“However Mahesh Babu has made a career vow to not play anti-social characters. He loved the script of Pushpa. But he didn’t think he was the right fit for the role as he didn’t believe in playing anti-social characters,” says the source.
