Vijay Deverakonda Says No To Hindi Debut



Gone are  the days when Tamil, Telugu  and even Malayalam actors ran after  success in Bollywood, only to be  signed sealed and snubbed  in Bollywood.  Even the greats  like  Shivaji Ganesan, Kamal Haasan , Rajnikanth, Mohanlal, Chiranjeevi  andNagarjuna were  not spared. After attempting  to  find a  footing in  Bollywood these legends  scampered  back to home turf.

The  only legend  of the South Indian  film  industry who  refused to  bite the Bollywood bait was Mahesh Babu. And now his juniors in the Telugu  film industry are also following in his  footsteps. Vijay Deverakonda who is seen by many visionaries   of  the Telugu  film industry as  the  successor to Mahesh Babu,  is following in  his senior’s footsteps.

Vijay who has had spectacular run  at the Telugu boxoffice  in  2018  has just turned  a plum role in  the Hindi film ’83, being directed  by Kabir Khan  .It features Ranveer Singh as Kapil  Dev and recreates  the  events  leading up to India’s victory in the Cricket World Cup in 1983. 

Various  big names  are being approached to play  the  participants  in the  83  tournament. Vijay Devarakonda was  offered the role  of  Krishnamachari Srikkanth, an offer politely  declined by the actor.

Says a  source close  to Vijay,  “Right now  he’s very busy with his  commitments  in Telugu. Vijay is ofcourse  looking forward  to  a Hindi film debut. But not in a film that already stars Ranveer Singh. No prizes  for guessing who  would have the most important role in the film.”
