After making his mark in Tollywood, young and happening Telugu hero Vijay Deverakonda is venturing into Bollywood with a prestigious Pan India project of dynamic director Puri Jagannadh, who delivered a blockbuster with his last film iSmart Shankar.
In association with Puri connects, the film billed to an actioner is being produced jointly by Bollywood’s leading production house Dharma Productions.
