In 'Pushpa: The Rise', Allu Arjun plays an underdog who becomes the boss of a sandalwood smuggling syndicate. The sequel will see him being the boss, taking on the powers that be, including his bete noir, the cop played by Faahad Faasil.
Rashmika Mandanna, who plays Pushpa's love interest, Srivalli, will have a bigger role in the sequel, according to the makers.

After the enormous success of the first instalment of the film, Allu Arjun's popularity in the north belt has skyrocketed. This is why the filmmakers want to seize the momentum and are paying special attention to 'Pushpa: The Rule's execution.
