Mumbai: Malayalam star Fahadh Faasil is celebrating his birthday on Tuesday, and on the occasion, the makers of his upcoming highly anticipated film ‘Pushpa: The Rule’ dropped his look from the film, sending his fans into a frenzy.
In the first part of the film, ‘Pushpa: The Rise’, which was released in December 2021 and became a massive blockbuster, Fahadh essayed the role of Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat, a cop who is set to have a major showdown with the titular character of Pushpa – Pushparaj in the second part of the film.
The poster features the actor in a bald look smoking a cigarette with swag as he dons a leather jacket rounded up with a pair of sunglasses and ear piercing. The poster has a monotone color filled with blood red shade.
The makers further jotted down the caption while wishing Fahadh Faasil, “Team #Pushpa2TheRule wishes the Massively talented #FahadhFaasil a very Happy Birthday Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat Sir will be back on the big screens with vengeance (sic)”.
Fahadh left an indelible mark on the audience with his performance of the antagonist in ‘Pushpa: The Rise’, and now with its sequel, the stage is set for an epic clash between Pushpa and Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat.
‘Pushpa: The Rise’ is known to have taken the box office by storm during the third wave of the pandemic in India when the theatres were majorly shut across the Indian cities to curb the spread of the contagion.
The film still managed to beat the likes of ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ and the Ranveer Singh-starrer ‘83’ and emerged as a winner on the box-office.
‘Pushpa: The Rule’ will see Sukumar reprising his role as the director and also stars Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna.
Produced by Mythri Movie Makers and Muttamsetty Media, the film is set for its release on December 22, 2023.
