Rashmika -Mandanna - Pushpa- MovieAllu Arjun spent numerous hours donning the greasepaint to get into the skin of the smuggler’s look. And not just Bunny, but even Rashmika Mandanna had to undergo a grueling session for her role, Srivalli.

Pushpa story unravels in Rayalaseema which has the characters speaking Chittoor slang. Not only Allu Arjun, but even Rashmika had to train at the slang. The Coorg beauty has opened up about her struggle with learning the language.

While Rashmika has mastered the Chittoor slang which is a mix of Tamil and Telugu, but it wasn’t the same initially. The actress had to spend three to four hours a day learning that dialect.

Rashmika dubs that although to ace the dialect and picking up the language took her a long time, she is happy that finally, the result paid off. This is the first time that Rashmika has paired alongside Allu Arjun.

Unlike the glamorous avatar we have seen till now, Sukumar has shown Rashmika in a completely raw and rustic look. Pushpa is made in two parts and the first part is set for theatrical release on December 17.
