Actor Vijay Devarakonda seems to be rapidly moving ahead. And if advance responses to his new film Dear Comrade are anything to go by, the film is all set to take Vijay’s career to another pinnacle.
At least, Bollywood badshah Karan Johar seems to think so. Karan saw Dear Comrade on Tuesday at a screening specially arranged by Vijay and his team, for which Vijay had flown down to Mumbai.
To cut a long story (of er… 2 hours 49 minutes and 56 seconds of the movie to be precise, that is) short, Karan loved Dear Comrade and has immediately bought the Hindi remake rights.
“I just loved it,” Karan tells us.
Now for the ‘Big If’ of this exceptional project: Would Vijay Devarakonda reprise his role from the Telugu original?
At the moment Vijay’s answer is no.
“Karan sincerely and keenly wants Vijay to play the role again in the Hindi version. But Vijay doesn’t want to repeat himself. If he had any inclination to walk down the same path twice, he would have accepted the offer to do the Hindi version of Arjun Reddy. But this time, Vijay won’t be let off the hook that easily. Karan won’t take ‘no’ for an answer,” reveals a source.
