Hyderabad, Oct 23 (IANS): The makers of 'Pushpa: The Rise' are planning to get Telugu folk singer Mangli on board, to sing a peppy number for the movie.
With Allu Arjun and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles, the movie has already got the best of the worlds, in terms of cast and crew. Now the famous folk singer is also set to join hands with the team of 'Pushpa'.
'Pushpa's music director, Devi Sri Prasad, has reportedly roped in Mangli to sing a folk song, which would represent the folks of the Rayalaseema region of Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh.

It is to be noted that Satyavathi Rathod, popularly known as Mangli in the Telugu states, has crooned some chartbuster songs in Telugu.
Famous for her traditional Banjara attire, Mangli's Telangana folk songs grabbed her fame as a singer and television presenter.
