Allu Arjun starrer Pushpa (Hindi) has had a phenomenal run at the box office. On its third Friday, the film raked in Rs 3.25 crore. The Hindi dubbed version of ‘Pushpa’ has crossed the 50 crore mark. It is reportedly expected to take over the collection of 83, provided that theatres remain open. Because of the New Year eve holiday, the film witnessed a jump in collection, with around 30 per cent growth.
‘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 hit the screens on December 17 and a section of the audience had objected to a particular romantic sequence from the movie. The scene 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 audience. The ‘van scene’ or ‘tiffin scene’ faced a lot of flak from Allu Arjun’s fans and following the uproar, the makers decided to delete the controversial sequence.
