Vijay Devarakonda to star in a Rockline Venkatesh production
The Arjun Reddy actor apparently made the commitment to work with the producer a while ago
Vijay Devarakonda, the latest heartthrob of Tollywood, is developing a bond with the Kannada industry. The actor was at the audio launch of Chamak a couple of months ago. He was also in Bengaluru recently to attend an event at Innovative City along with Rockline Venkatesh. While there, he met Puneeth Rajkumar at his residence and had a chat.
And from what we hear from Rockline Venkatesh, a film is planned with Vijaya Devarakonda, which he says was an old commitment, made before Arjun Reddy. “We are coming together for a Telugu film for which the script work is underway. If all goes per plan, the film will take off by mid 2018,” he says.
Apparently, Vijay Devarakonda caught the producer’s eye with his first film in which he shared screen space with Nani. “Watching the film, I was curious about this upcoming talent who performed very well in the film, and the impression was further strengthened when he did Pelli Choopulu, and proved himself to be a good artiste,” says Rockline, adding, “I had a good subject for him, and he liked it, too. From then we have been in touch. We will work together on the film soon."
