If the buzz from film circles is to be believed, Vijay Deverakonda will be playing the lead role in one of Mani Ratnam’s future films.
The legendary director is reportedly impressed with the young actor’s work in Arjun Reddy. He is very much impressed with Vijay’s performance that he congratulated him and also proposed to do a bilingual film with him shortly.
There were speculations about Vijay D being approached for a multi-starrer in which Simbu is playing one of the leads. However, Mani Ratnam wants to make a solo film with Vijay.
According to the buzz, Mani is planning to rope in Vijay for the subject that he prepared for Ram Charan. Mega powerstar was more than willing to do a movie with Mani until Cheliyaa released.
Given the director’s recent form, Charan lost interest in Mani’s film and queued up Koratala Siva’s film after Rangasthalam 1985.
Not having any particular image will help Vijay D to make interesting choices and work with unconventional directors.
Let’s see whether his film with Mani Ratnam turns into a reality or not.
