Finally, the wait is over. Yes, we are talking about Rashmika Mandanna's first look poster from Allu Arjun's Pushpa. The actress, on Wednesday, shared her first look as Pushpa's love interest Srivalli in the Sukumar-directed film and sent the Internet into a tizzy. Rashmika Mandanna, who plays the female lead in the film, looks amazing in her never-seen-before look. She can be seen sporting a traditional outfit and wearing an earring in front of a mirror - a plate with a saree and what appears to be a floral headband is kept in front of her. The background in the poster shows the story of Pushpa, in which Allu Arjun plays the titular role, is set in a rural town.
Sharing the poster, Rashmika Mandanna wrote "Srivalli" with a fire and a red heart icon.
