Over the years, the dynamics of Indian cinema have undergone a major change with mega-budget movies being made, extensive star casts, pan-India releases and more. The success of movies like RRR and the KGF franchise has blurred the line between Hindi Cinema and South cinema, marking a major transition in the industry.

Pushpa 2 recently ran into a slight hiccup

The movie is just under three months away from its worldwide release. Ahead of the same, as per media reports, the film's editor, Antony Reuben, who was also involved in the first installment, has reportedly opted out of the project. The reason behind the same has been cited as scheduling conflicts on his end. Reuben had reportedly attempted to accommodate the dates for the Allu Arjun film with his other professional commitments, but the same did not appear feasible. Naveen Nooli, a National Film Award winner, will now be editing for Pushpa 2.
