Actors Anushka Shetty and Vijay Deverakonda may soon collaborate for a project, according to Hindustan Times report on Monday. This is the first time the two actors would be seen sharing screen space.
Headed by a debutant director, makers of the movie are expected to make the announcement in a few weeks. Shetty was promoting her latest Amazon Prime Video thriller Nishabdham (2020) last month, co-starring R Madhavan, when she announced that she has signed two more Telugu films.
Shetty, critically acclaimed for her role as Princess Devasena from the blockbuster series Baahubali (2015) and Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (2017), has worked predominantly in both Telugu and Tamil films. The actor, who recently made her debut on Twitter, posted a picture asking her fans to follow her “for some interesting updates in the coming days”.
Meanwhile, earlier this year filmmaker Gautam Vasudev Menon announced Ondraga, sequel to Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa, starring Shetty and R Madhavan in crucial roles. Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya starred Trisha Krishnan and Simbu in lead roles.
Telugu actor Deverakonda, who rose to fame for his lead role in the 2017 hit Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017), was last seen in World Famous Lover (2020), a Telugu romantic drama written and directed by Kranthi Madhav. Arjun Reddy, which also starred Shalini Pandey was remade in several languages including, Hindi and Tamil.
The actor is busy with his upcoming project Puri Jagannadh’s pan-India film Fighter, starring Ananya Panday , marking his debut in the Hindi film industry. He also has a project with his Arjun Reddy director Sandeep Vanga Reddy in the pipeline.
