Vijay Devarakonda is one of the very few heroes who became a star in such a short span. Called as 'Rowdy' by his fans, Vijay made his mark in Tollywood with his unconventional films.
He even ventured into production with 'Meeku Maatrame Cheptha' starring his 'Pellichoopulu' director Tharun Bhascker. This film is getting released in November. On the other hand, he is working on 'World Famous Lover' directed by Kranti Madhav. This romantic drama is expected to get wrapped up by the end of October and he will immediately join the shooting of his next film 'Hero'.
As per sources, Vijay will be seen as a bike racer in 'Hero'. The first schedule where they shot a race scene with high budget was completed earlier and the makers have planned a lengthy schedule which kick-starts from November.
Directed by Anand Annamali, the film has Malavika Mohanan romancing Vijay. 'Hero' is being filmed in all the South Indian languages and Mythri Movie Makers are producing this flick.
