Vijay Deverakonda, one of the most popular Telugu actors from the current crop, was most recently seen in action entertainer Dear Comrade (2019), which failed to live up to the high expectations of the audience. Keeping the failure of the movie aside, the young heartthrob has now joined forces with hit filmmaker Puri Jagannadh for his next film, which is said to be an out-and-out commercial entertainer.

The latest update on the much-awaited project is that the makers have now locked its official title. According to reports, the movie has been titled Fighter. It will feature Vijay Deverakonda in the role of an MMA fighter. Jagannadh has registered the title and has even begun the pre-production work.

We also here that Jr NTR, not Vijay Deverakonda was the original choice of Puri Jagannadh for the lead role in the film. When Jr NTR rejected the offer as he didn't love the script, the director narrated the script to Vijay Deverakonda who lapped it up.

Fighter will mark the maiden collaboration between Vijay Deverakonda and director Puri Jagannadh. If all goes well, the team will start rolling the camera in January 2020.
