Addressing the media on the first look release of Dhoomam, producer Vijay Kiragandur was quoted saying, “Dhoomam is based on a new concept. And we are going to see and witness Fahadh in a new and massive role. We certainly feel that the amalgamation of the biggest actors together can create and weave magic together.”
Over and above this, Fahadh Faasil will reprise his popular character Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat in the second installment of the Pushpa franchise, Pushpa: The Rule. Meanwhile, speculations about Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor in talks with director Sukumar to play a cop in the much-talked-about sequel were doing rounds. However, rubbishing such reports, producer Naveen Yerneni in an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla called it “wrong news.”
He further added, “Fahadh Faasil is doing the role. So it’s hundred percent false news. We will start shooting (for Pushpa 2) from this month’s end. Between the 20th and 30th we will start the shoot. Initially, we will be shooting in Hyderabad and then we will go to the forest and other locations.”
