Vijay Deverakonda back to complete Taxiwala
The film is the actor's first project after the release of Arjun Reddy.
After a New Year break that took him all over Belgium, actor Vijay Deverakonda is back in the studios to shoot Taxiwala. It is his first project after the release of Arjun Reddy.
"We're looking at a March release. The film requires a great deal of post-production work. It's got a whole lot of computer-graphics and special-effects. And we don't want to rush," said Vijay.
The actor enjoys working with new directors. "They are more open to new ideas. So the whole process of creating a film becomes more inclusive and participative. I was almost a unit-hand with Sandeep Vanga, my director of Arjun Reddy. Now it's the same with Rahul Sankrityayan, director of Taxiwala.We are trying to create something worth the audiences' time and money."
Vijay has opted for a role diametrically opposite to Arjun Reddy. "In Taxiwala, I am not Arjun Reddy. In fact the two characters are so different that if they were to meet, they'd hate each other. For me, as an actor it was important not to do more of Arjun Reddy just because the audiences liked what they saw," he said.
