Well, with the success of the Hindi dubbed versions of Arjun Reddy, Geetha Govindam, Dwarka and others, Vijay Deverakonda has attended the status of Pan-India star. While we are waiting for his pan-India venture Fighter, which is expected to release in 2021, the latest report suggests that the handsome hunk is set to make his Bollywood debut with Abhishek Kapoor’s next project, which is based on Balakot Air Strike. Reportedly, the filmmaker has joined hands with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Bhushan Kumar for this film.
As per the PinkVilla report, a source close to the development said, “The untitled project on Balakot Air Strike will mostly be South superstar Vijay Deverakonda’s big Bollywood debut. While his next film Fighter will be dubbed in Hindi and given a pan-India release, Abhishek’s directorial will be his full-fledged Hindi feature. He will play the role of Wing Commander and national hero Abhinandan Varthaman who was kept captive in Pakistan for 60 hours following the India-Pakistan standoff. The film will trace the Pulwama attack, the air strike and Abhinandan’s time in captivity in the neighbouring country and his return to India.”
Apparently, the Dear Comrade star has liked the script and has even given a verbal nod to it though he is yet to sign the dotted lines. “When Vijay was offered the project, he expressed his interest in it. While he still has not signed on the dotted line, the Covid outbreak delayed things further. Right now, the team has no clue of when to bring the film on floors. Abhishek will first finish his film with Ayushmann Khurrana and Vaani Kapoor and then proceed with this ambitious project,” added the source. Well, if this news materialises, it will definitely make all his fans super happy. So, are you excited for this project? Tweet and let us know @bollywood_life.
