A source told Bollywood Hungama, “The team of Pushpa: The Rise – Part 01 had reached out to Ajay Devgn and had asked him if he could tweet the link of the trailer of the film’s Hindi version. Ajay was more than happy to do so. In his tweet, he stated that the trailer is ‘powerful’ and wished good luck to Allu Arjun.”
The source continued, “Similarly, Riteish Deshmukh also happily tweeted a teaser video which was made to announce that the film’s theatrical trailer would be out the next day. Riteish also wrote highly of the film and the actor. The makers were touched by their gestures and hence, they included their name under ‘Special Thanks’.
An industry insider said, “In recent times, Allu Arjun has been supportive of the efforts of Bollywood in bringing back viewers in most states. In October, he wished the team of Sooryavanshi, which starred Ajay Devgn in a dynamic role, all the best. 2 days ago, at the press conference in Mumbai, he congratulated Sooryavanshi’s makers as they succeeded in getting viewers back to cinemas. Ajay and everyone else in the film were touched by Allu Arjun’s words and the way he cares for the cinema business. Hence, it’s no surprise that Ajay got instantly ready to share Pushpa: The Rise – Part 01’s trailer.”
