Reportedly, the yet to be titled film is a thriller which was supposed to begin production in November 2019. But the project had to be put on hold for some time due to the unavailability of Vijay Deverakonda.

Meanwhile, Vijay Deverakonda is currently busy with his multilingual film with director Puri Jagannadh. Tentatively titled Fighter, the film stars Ananya Panday as his leading lady. According to reports, Deverakonda is playing the character of a boxer in the movie. Officially launched in January amid much fanfare, the film’s shooting is currently on hold due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Fighter is being jointly produced by Dharma Productions’ head honcho Karan Johar, Puri Jagannadh and Charmme Kaur. Apart from Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday, the forthcoming film also stars Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, Vishu Reddy and Aali in significant characters.

Vijay had also started a film called Hero. He had already shot for a schedule.
