Kiara Advani in talks for Vijay Deverakonda's Fighter
Directed by Puri Jagannadh, Fighter stars Vijay Devarkonda in the role of a boxer
Kiara Advani has been approached to play the leading lady opposite Vijay Deverakonda in Puri Jagannadh's romantic action film, Fighter.
"Vijay shares a great rapport with Kiara ever since the duo shot for a commercial. So, he has reached out to her. She really liked her role and the storyline, and is keen to be a part of the project. However, she has sought some time to adjust her call sheets to accommodate the film," informs a source close to the production unit.
Last seen in Vinaya Vidheya Rama, Kiara has recently turned down two Telugu films — Varun Tej's boxing drama and Bellamkonda Sreenivas's untitled commercial entertainer due to her busy schedule.
Basking in the success of Kabir Singh, Kiara is currently working on five Hindi films — Good Newwz, Laxmmi Bomb, Indoo Ki Jawani, Bhool Bhulaiyaa, and Shershaah — and remains one of the busiest actors in Bollywood.
Directed by Puri Jagannadh, Fighter will feature Vijay Deverakonda as a martial artist, who is said to have a stutter. The film will go on floors early next year.
