Vijay Devarakonda’s next 12th movie directed by Gautham Tinnanuri is generating significant buzz as a Pan India project. Initially, Srileela was set to be the heroine, but due to scheduling conflicts, she has been replaced by Rashmika Mandani, with an official announcement expected soon.
This film marks Vijay Devarakonda’s venture into the period drama action genre. It tells the story of a hero’s journey from a police constable to a mafia leader, produced grandly by Sitara Entertainments. Interestingly, there are plans to release this movie in two parts, following the trend of Indian cinema producing sequels.
The strategy is to build hype for part 2 if part 1 becomes a blockbuster, though this approach carries risks if the first part doesn’t perform well. Considering Vijay Devarakonda’s recent career trajectory with “Liger” facing disappointment and “Khushi” receiving average reviews, there’s anticipation surrounding whether “VD 12” will strike gold at the Pan India level.
The success of movies like “KGF Chapter 2” and “Baahubali 2” in the sequel format has influenced this decision. Fans and the industry are eager to see if this ambitious project will propel Vijay Devarakonda to new heights in his career.
