Actor Vijay Deverakonda’s Film With Director Sukumar Not Shelved, Clarify Producers

Actor Vijay Deverakonda and filmmaker Sukumar‘s multilingual film is still on the cards, the film’s producer Falcon Creations announced in a statement on Monday. The statement came amid speculations that the film had been shelved.


Terming these reports as “unverified gossip”, Falcon Creations took to Twitter and revealed that the film was still on track.

“This project shall start as planned, once the pre-existing commitments of Hero and Director are completed. Do not believe misinformation being spread by some sections. We strongly condemn such unverified gossip and false propaganda! There is no change in the plan, no change in the combination. This is only going to be BIGGER,” the statement read.

Falcon Creations clarified that the film will release in 2022. In September 2020, it was announced that Deverakonda would be teaming up with the director for the first time.

Devarakonda is currently busy with his first pan-Indian film, Liger, helmed by Puri Jagannadh. The film will also star Ananya Panday and Ramya Krishnan. The film, which will release in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Malayalam, had completed a chunk of its shoot before the Covid-19 pandemic induced lockdown was implemented. However, the shooting is currently stalled due to the increasing numbers of Covid-19 cases in Mumbai.

The action film is produced by Jagannadh’s banner Puri Connects, Charmee Kaur, Dharma Productions, and Apoorva Mehta.


Sukumar, on the other hand, is completing the production of his upcoming film Pushpa. It stars Allu Arjun in the lead role and will release in theatres on August 13. It was recently announced that Malayalam actor, Fahadh Faasil, will be making his debut in Telugu films with this project. Written and directed by Sukumar, the film is produced by Naveen Yerneni and Y Ravi Shankar under the banner of Mythri Movie Makers. Music is composed by Devi Sri Prasad and Karthika Srinivas is in charge of editing. Miroslaw Kuba Brozek and Jani Master are the cinematographer and choreographer, respectively.
