The film launch was supposed to take place a while ago. However, due to the prior commitments of Vijay Deverakonda, the Anand Annamalai directorial project took time to take off. In this sport-drama, the Geetha Govindam actor will be seen as a professional bike racer.
Vijay Deverakonda is presently busy with the shoot of his next under the direction of Kranthi Madhav and the yet-to-be-titled film has Raashi Khanna, Aishwarya Rajesh, Izabelle De and Catherine Tresa in pivotal roles.
On the other hand, Deverakonda’s Dear Comrade is scheduled to hit the screens on July 26. The movie has Rashmika Mandanna as the female lead.
