Meanwhile, a breaking announcement has been made by the makers of Pushpa and the entire social media is abuzz about it. Pushpa has been announced as a two-part film. Yes! Pushpa will release in two parts and this decision was taken because of the large scale of the story and its characters.

The excitement we witnessed for 'Introduction To Pushpa Raj' was phenomenal and we are determined to take it all to the next level by releasing the film as a duology. We have the best stars, artists, and technicians aboard and we hope to give the audience a memorable experience in the theatres through this story.

Pushpa revolves around the red sanders heist in the hills of Andhra Pradesh. With this film, the audience shall see Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna, sharing the screen space for the first time. The first part of the pan-India film is slated to release on the 13th of August, 2021 and the second part will be released in 2022". Though it has been confirmed by the makers that the first part of Pushpa will release on August 13, the plan might change if the Covid situation does not come under control. Let us keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best. Pushpa is the next notable South Indian film to be announced as a two-part film after Rajamouli's Baahubali and Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan.
