A project in the combination of star director Sukumar and hero Vijay Deverakonda was formally announced in 2020. Initially, Sukumar planned to take Vijay’s film on the sets soon after wrapping up the shooting for Allu Arjun’s Pushpa but as a major development later Sukumar divided Pushpa into two parts.
As Pushpa-1 went on to become a super success at the Indian box office, Sukumar is currently focusing on Pushpa-2. The shooting for the film kick-started from today onwards. Meanwhile, the latest news is that Sukumar has decided to keep Vijay Deverakonda’s project on hold as he is getting better offers from Bollywood after the release of Pushpa-1. If Pushpa-2 also ends up as a major hit, then Sukumar’s demand in the market will be even better. At this crucial juncture, Sukumar’s project with Vijay Deverakonda is not going to happen anytime soon. It is widely known that Sukumar is also having a project with Mega Powerstar Ram Charan in the pipeline.
On the other hand, Vijay Deverakonda is currently having Kushi under the direction of Shiva Nirvana at the filming stage. The film’s shooting is presently kept on hold due to the female lead Samantha’s health complications. Vijay is also in talks with Jersey fame Gowtham Tinnanuri for a project. If everything goes as per the plan, Vijay Deverakonda and Gowtham Tinnanuri’s film will go on the floors from December itself, say sources.
