A producer of Pushpa has been quoted as saying that the film will indeed be split into two parts.
The shoot of Pushpa-2 is completed only to a small extent. Up to 10% of the shoot is over. After the first part is wrapped up, the filming of the second part will commence.
Mythri Movie Makers decided to make the Allu Arjun starrer a two-part spectacle after Sukumar said that the story can't be told in 2.5 hours.
Starring Fahadh Faasil as the heroine, Pushpa-2 will have Fahadh Faasil as the actual antagonist.
