Did Deverakonda Ghost-Direct World Famous Lover?
Vijay Deverakonda’s latest film World Famous Lover opened to mixed audience and critical reaction this week. Though his performance has come in for praise, the script and direction have been panned for being muddled and below-expectation.
Apparently the director Kranthi Madav and Vijay Deverekonda couldn’t see eye to eye on the project.Sources say, the director and his leading man had a massive fall-out mid-way through the making of World Famous Lover.
“They just couldn’t jell together. Vijay who is always an active participant fromn behind the camera in all his starrers,was not on the same page as his director. The film’s episodes shaped up very differently from how Vijay imagined them. Yeah, it would be correct to say Vijay was disappointed.He finally had to take control.”
Apparently Vijay personally re-shot several passages of the film making us wonder if he’s turning into a formal director soon.The credit for the final shape given to World Famous Lover, goes to its leading man.
World Famous Lover has still not come up to audiences’ expectations. The general feeling is that Vijay Deverakonda needs to reinvent himself rather than play variations of Arjun Reddy in film after film.
