Vijay Deverakonda and director Kranthi Madhav are teaming up for a new film with KS Rama Rao bankrolling it. The announcement regarding this project was made some weeks ago. Recent reports suggest that it will be an out-and-out romantic entertainer. Further, we hear that Vijay Deverakonda will be playing a playboy in it.
Earlier, it was said that Catherine Tresa had bagged the female lead role in this entertainer but now sources in the know say that this untitled film will have four heroines and Raashi Khanna, Aishwarya Rajesh and Izabelle Leite have been signed up. We will get a clear picture of this project only when the details are disclosed officially.
Meanwhile, Vijay Deverakonda is busy with Anand Annamalaiâ€™s upcoming flick. Anand Annamalai, the dialogue writer for the critically acclaimed film Kakka Muttai, is all set to don the directorâ€™s robes. Reports are that it is a sport's musical and has been tentatively titled Hero. In this movie, Vijay Deverakonda will be playing a professional biker and will be undergoing rigorous training for the role.
On the heroine roped in for Hero, we hear that it will be Malavika Mohanan. The actor was last seen in the Rajinikanth starrer Petta, which hit the marquee in January this year. Malavika Mohanan did not sign up any new films after Petta and was waiting for the right role. To be released in Telugu, Tamil and Kannada, the film will be bankrolled by Y. Naveen, Y. Ravi Shankar and C. V. Mohan under the banner Mythri Movie Makers.
Vijay Deverakondaâ€™s last release was Dear Comrade. Directed by Bharat Kamma, the film had Rashmika Mandanna playing the female lead.
