Pushpa became a runaway hit during the time of its release.

On the other hand, Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna’s popularity grew massively among the Hindi-speaking audience. As Allu has now become a pan India star, the latest buzz suggests that the actor has hiked his fees to a whopping amount.
Directed by Sukumar, the film also stars Fahadh Faasil along with other actors in supporting roles. Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s item number Oo Antava became one of the talking points of the film. Meanwhile, the team is now gearing up for part 2 which is slated to go on floors by the end of this year.

For Pushpa 1, Allu Arjun charged around 30-40 Crores. On the other hand director Sukumar who received 18 Crore for part 1, has also demanded more and now he’ll take around 40 Crores. Interestingly, their demands have also been agreed by the producers.
As per earlier reports, even Rashmika Mandanna too hiked her fees. For the first film, the actress received 2 Crores, however, for part 2 she has asked around 3 Crores. Even makers are fine with her demand.
