Vijay Deverakonda's Dear Comrade to release in four languages
The film, which marks the directorial debut of Bharat Kamma, will release simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam in May
Vijay Deverakonda is all set to reach the entire South Indian audience through their own language with his upcoming romantic drama, Dear Comrade. The film, which marks the directorial debut of Bharat Kamma, will release simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam in May.
Vijay, who has become a household name and a bankable star in Telugu cinema with blockbusters like Pelli Choopulu, Arjun Reddy, Geetha Govindam and Taxiwaala, made his Tamil debut last year with the political thriller, NOTA. Despite the underwhelming performance of the film at the box office, the performance of Vijay was lauded by the critics.
"Keeping in mind the growing popularity of Vijay and Rashmika across South India, the makers have thought it would be great to release Dear Comrade in all the four South Indian languages. They also believe that the film's storyline has universal appeal. The film will release in the third week of May with the same title across languages," informs a source from the production team.
While Rashmika plays a cricketer, Vijay will be seen as a rebellious student leader from Kakinada in Dear Comrade. The film's teaser will release on March 17. Justin Prabhakaran of Pannaiyarum Padminiyum fame has helmed the music for the film.
