When 'Pushpa' came out in December last year, more than its story, Allu Arjun's rugged look, reckless attitude and the cuteness of Rashmika Mandanna's Srivalli struck the right chord with the general audience. It seems debutant director Srikanth Odela of 'Dasara' has been thoroughly influenced by the Sukumar directorial's characterizations.
On Monday, Keerthy Suresh's first look poster was released. Her name in the film is Vennela but she could well be Srivalli 2. The vibes are so similar.
And Nani's name in 'Dasara' could well be Pushpa Raj 2. If you compare the messy looks of Allu Arjun and Nani in the two films, they bear clear-cut resemblances.
One hopes the story of 'Dasara' is completely different from 'Pushpa'. Even if a couple of similarities are there, the audience will call 'Dasara' unoriginal.
