The movie industry is a place where no one can be sure of their careers. While a blockbuster sends them soaring into clouds, one disaster sends them spiraling down. Rowdy star Vijay Deverakonda is currently experiencing the second phase now. As his movie with Puri Jagannadh, Liger has become an all-time disaster, many projects that involve Vijay in the lead role are plunged into a state of dilemma. The immediate project of the VD-Jagan combo, Janaganamana itself is the first victim.
Even after completing a schedule of the film, it was unofficially said to be shelved. Although neither the director nor the star was responsive regarding this, Tollywood circles are abuzz with the news. Now, another project of VD seems to have got shelved as well. Back in 2021, long before the debacle of Liger, star director Sukumar planned a different project with Vijay. It was said to be a periodical movie in the backdrop of the Telangana Movement.
Considered to be a very huge project, Vijay fans were excited about it back then. Kedar Selagamsetty was named the producer under his Falcon Creations. If Liger returned at least average results, this film would have seen some light once Sukku completed Pushpa 2. But, the unexpected outcome of Puri’s film resulted in the shelving of this project, says the Telugu film circles.
They say that this could be temporary shelving and the commencement depends on the results of Rowdy’s next projects like Kushi. Well, not just Sukku’s project but the entire career of VD seems to be hanging on a thread and he definitely needs commercial success to sustain in the films. Let’s hope Siva Nirvana’s directorial Kushi will give him that.
