Speaking to UK Time News, Fahadh said: “My character was going to be in the second part. One morning, Sukumar mister (the director) called me and said ‘I want to give a teaser’. I was initially going to do one scene, which ended up being two and a half scenes. I didn’t do a character like that, a crazy character”
“In Pushpa you just met Bhanwar Singh Shekhawat. You have not discovered him yet. There is so much to learn and discover about him. That was just a taste. You are going to experience him in the next part. All you want see about him will be new. He is not where you left him. He is now prepared. Wait for it,” the actor told the same portal.
