Pelli Choopulu, which was released just about a month ago on July 29th, has attracted a great response both from the critics and the audience alike. And Vijay Devarakonda who played the lead hero, is already on a roll, receiving offers from top directors.
From what he says, Vijay Devarakonda appears to be a man with a simple formula – He only needs a good script, everything else is secondary.
That is how Vijay wants to go about with his future film projects.
VIJAY DEVARAKONDA WORKS WITH NANDINI REDDY FOR HIS NEXT FILM
An actor who is only 1 movie old, could impress someone like Nandini reddy (“Ala Modalaindi” director) , enough to instantly seal a movie deal with him.
Vijay will be seen opposite Malavika Nair in Nandini Reddy’s movie.
Malavika Nair, who has gained applause for her chirpy, innocent, free-spirited young woman role in Kalyana Vaibhogame, seems like a fitting match for Vijay Devarakonda.
If you can’t get enough of Pellichoopulu director Tharun Bhaskar and if you still haven’t seen his two short films before he directed Pellichoopulu, now is a good time.
Both his Short Films were huge hits on YouTube, especially “Anukokunda”.
