Helmed by filmmaker Sukumar, the two-part film Pushpa stars actors Rashmika Mandanna and Allu Arjun in the lead, with Fahadh Faasil playing the antagonist. Pushpa: The Rise, the first instalment in the franchise, marks Fahadh’s first Tollywood movie. It also had Samantha in a cameo role in the song ‘Oo Antava’. The film also marked the first time collaboration between lead actors Allu Arjun and Rashmika.

The plot revolves around red sandalwood smuggling. Pushpa hit the big screens on December 17 last year and was subsequently released on Over-the-top (OTT) platform Amazon Prime Video.

Speaking about the success of the film, Rashmika Mandanna told PTI in an interview, “One of my films that was released at the end of 2021 was Pushpa. And I am super grateful that every year I have had a release. I have had hits before COVID-19 and all these years also and I hope in 2022 also this will continue.” She also added, "I hope the Hindi films that I am associated with, Mission Majnu and Goodbye, do well. I am super glad that these two films happened. With Pushpa, the year ended on a high note.”
