Bengaluru: There were reports of Tamil star Vijay Sethupati walking out of Allu Arjun’s next big film Pushpa. And now, there is another rumour doing the rounds. Kannada actor Daali Dhananjaya will be replacing Vijay Sethupati.

If this turns out to be true, then this will be a giant leap for Dhananjaya.

Dhananjaya made an impact in the Kannada film industry with his performance as Daali in Shivarajkumar starrer Tagaru in 2017.

Director Sukumar was hell bent to cast Vijay Sethupati, but things didn’t seem to work. As the film will be on the production stage immediately after the lockdown is lifted, the team may find it difficult and hence they have almost zeroed in on Dhananjaya.

Dhananjaya has already worked with Ram Gopal Varma in Bhairava Geetha. Varma wrote the screen play for Bhairava Geeta. The film was a bilingual and with that, Dhananjaya has an idea how Telugu film industry works.

The film Pushpa is a story themed around red sandalwood smugglers and Tollywood’s stylish star Allu Arjun has already got into the character by changing his appearance.

If the team gives the nod, this will be a big turning point in Dhananjaya's career as Pushpa will be released in five languages.
