[Watch] Ganpati Idols Inspired By Allu Arjun’s ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ Flood Markets
New Delhi: Telugu star Allu Arjun’s distinctive look and style from last year’s blockbuster, ‘Pushpa: The Rise’ has inspired several Ganpati idols before the Ganesh Chaturthi festival.
On Tuesday, fan clubs of the actor shared pictures and videos of a Ganpati statue, where the deity can be seen sitting in a white kurta-pyjama similar to how Arjun wore in the film. The idol also performed Pushpa’s signature hand gesture from the film. Other fan clubs shared other pictures of similar idols inspired by Pushpa’s looks and mannerisms from the film.
Before this, it was reported that Ram Charan’s look from the blockbuster RRR had inspired Lord Ganesh’s statues. On Monday, fan clubs of Ram Charan and Jr NTR shared Ganpati idols inspired by their characters from RRR from Delhi and other places. Reacting to the Telugu actors serving as inspirations for the idols in places like Maharashtra and Delhi, one fan wrote on Twitter, “This is Tollywood supremacy.” Another fan praised Arjun’s craze and said, “This is heights of pan-India popularity.”
The 2015 film ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ had also inspired a few Ganpati idols. A scene involving Prabhas carrying a Shivling in the film led to many idol makers copying it for Ganpati statues.
