Theatres shutting down in Delhi did not affect the film’s collection in a massive way. According to boxofficeindia.com, ‘Pushpa’ (Hindi) is expected to cross the 60 crore nett mark at the end of its theatrical run. This Allu Arjun starrer has done very good business in the Mumbai circuit, adding approximately Rs 20 crore to the film’s total. CP Berar and Gujarat / Saurashtra markets have also contributed in a positive manner.
‘Pushpa’ is originally a Telugu-language action drama, which has been released in Malayalam, Tamil, Kannada, and Hindi languages. Starring Allu Arjun, Rashmika Mandanna and Fahadh Faasil in the lead, this entertainer is written and directed by Sukumar. The film released on December 17 and a section of the audience had taken objection to a particular romantic scene in the movie. The sequence in question featured the lead actor touching his love interest’s chest in a public place. It raised eyebrows as the gesture was not liked by the Telugu audience. The ‘van scene’ or ‘tiffin scene’ was faced a lot of flak from Allu Arjun’s fans and following the uproar, the makers decided to delete the controversial sequence.
