The air of uncertainty surrounding 'Pushpa 2' has led to a piece of new speculation. The talk of the town is that the film will probably miss the 2023 box office.
In a recent interview, Bunny Vas said that the film will go on the floors in the last week of July this year. Those who are disregarding his words are speculating that director Sukumar is not ready yet. They are peddling the unverified claim that Sukumar is yet to complete a chunk of the script.
If the film doesn't go on the floors by the end of August, endless speculations about its probable late release will only get rife.
The talk that the film will be released only in 2024 doesn't look believable. Too much delay might evaporate some of the craze surrounding the pan-India flick. 'KGF 2' and 'RRR' got delayed because of the pandemic. If 'Pushpa 2' gets delayed way too much in normal times, Bunny will have to try a bit harder to maintain the momentum in terms of staying in the Hindi audience's minds.
There is another speculation surrounding the film. It's said that Mythri Movie Makers wants to bet big on its Hindi release. The banner is so confident that it is expecting the Bunny-starrer to repeat the kind of performance that 'KGF 2' did this year. If true, the gamble will only get bigger and bigger. The buzz is that the budget of 'Pushpa 2' is Rs 400 Cr, which sounds incredible.
