Pushpa has stunned everyone with the magnitude of his box office success. Be it the Telugu or Hindi version, the film took the theaters by storm and still does. With Allu Arjun, Rashmika Mandanna and others in key roles, the film has a long list of actors who initially turned the film down. Today we are going to look at those names.

Interestingly, the main characters, including Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna, were not the first to be approached for their respective characters. Below is the long list:

Disha Patani

Disha Patani was approached for Oo Antava‚Ķ song. Yes, you read that right! The actress was reportedly the first to be approached for the item number. However, for unknown reasons, the actress did not agree to do the song. Man, we can only imagine the bar of hotness she would have raised in Oo Antava…!

Nora Fatehi

Nora Fatehi is the favorite actress of the Indian filmmakers who want a smashing song in their movies. Also the Pushpa makers were eager to bring in the beauty to beat it with Allu Arjun in Oo Antava…. However, it was the money question that cost her the part. She reportedly demanded 2 crores for the song. Finally, Samantha was roped in.

Mahesh Baboo

Mahesh Babu was the first to be approached for the titular role in Pushpa. The actor reportedly even liked the script. However, it was due to some creative differences, both director Sukumar and Mahesh decided to part ways. Post it, Allu Arjun took the part, and the rest is history!


Yes, Samantha’s name in this list would surprise many. For Oo Antava… Sam was offered a female lead character from Srivali. However, for unknown reasons, it didn’t work out, and as we know, Rashmika grabbed the role.

Vijay Sethupathic

If we are to believe the reports, Vijay Sethupathi was offered the role of Jolly Reddy in Pushpa. But due to the tight schedule, the Master Actor had to let go of the film. Later it was offered to Dhananjaya who played the role in the film.
