Samantha Was The First Choice For Pushpa?
Stylish star Allu Arjun and creative filmmaker Sukumar came together for the third time with their latest film 'Pushpa'. It is known that Rashmika Mandanna has been finalized for the heroine role in the movie. Recently, interesting information revealed regarding the selection of heroine.
Sukumar reportedly approached Samantha for the heroine role initially as he was very much impressed with her for Ramalakshmi role in 'Rangasthalam'. Samantha liked the village belle role but politely rejected the offer. She felt that there would not be much variation because she has already played such a role in 'Rangasthalam'. Then the Sukumar's team has approached Rashmika Mandanna.
Samantha has already shared screen space with Allu Arjun in 'S/o Sathyamurthy' so the pair looks good on the screen. It is disappointing that Sam has missed a crazy project, Rashmika has got a chance to prove her talent as a village belle.
