Out of a couple of rumours making rounds on Allu Arjun’s prestigious project ‘Pushpa’, Vijay Sethupathi walking out of the movie was one of them. Though it’s not officially confirmed, according to the buzz, another Tamil actor Bobby Simha is in talks for the role.
Coming to the alleged reasons why Vijay Sethupathy walked out of Allu Arjun’s project with director Sukumar, reports are making rounds that Vijay Sethupathi agreed to play the antagonist role when the movie was intended to be made in Telugu, alone.
But, now that ‘Pushpa‘ is going to be a pan-Indian movie, the acclaimed actor doesn’t want to be seen playing the negative role in other languages. The negative role might pull him into controversy mainly because of the story’s connection to Tamilians in the borders, Chittoor district.
We think it could be because of the story’s connection with Red Sanders smuggling and the tensions in the borders between Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu where many local Tamilians were killed allegedly as smugglers.
