Pushpa 2 important crew member quits months before film's release

According to reports, the much-anticipated Allu Arjun starrer Pushpa 2: The Rule, has undergone a significant change in its technical crew. Antony Ruben, the editor who played an important role in the first installment, has stepped down from his position due to scheduling conflicts with his other film projects.

Reportedly, Ruben made every effort to juggle the dates but ultimately had to make the tough decision to exit Pushpa 2, according to Siasat. His departure will surely be a setback for the team as the makers and director will have to look for someone to fill in his shoes. According to the same report, Sukumar acted swiftly and reached out to Naveen Nooli to take up the role.
