“Look at Allu Arjun’s film Pushpa. It is basically a single screen film. How did it become such a big hit? Because people are relating to it.” When the actor was further asked if he feels Pushpa is similar to the larger-than-life masala films from the 80s and 90s? he responded, “Yes exactly like that. It is all about playing to the gallery. Allu’s. Allu Arjun is a superstar and his superstardom has been used in the film with some fantastic timing. That is why people like it. I watched it. I found it beautiful. Allu has been one of my favourite actors,” Mithun told Hindustan Times in an interview.

After extending its theatrical run and getting amazing response at the box office, the Hindi version of Pushpa has marked its OTT debut on Amazon Prime Video. For the transformation, the superstar had to undergo an intense makeup and prosthetic session. Right from getting his eyebrows and curly hair right to getting the perfect skin colour, the actor aced the look.

Meanwhile, Mithun is currently gearing up for his upcoming series Bestseller. He recently revealed the inspiration behind his character of ACP Lokesh Pramanik on the web show. The character is a huge foodie and a large chunk of that trait comes from the show’s producer Siddharth Malhtora.
