Whenever one has to talk about hero Vijay Devarkonda, the beginning has to be made with ‘Arjun Reddy’. This is because with this movie, Vijay almost reached the status of a star hero. In today’s competition, getting such fame with just one film is not a small achievement. Tell us which producer would not like to make a film with that hero. Similarly, no heroine will say no if she gets an opportunity to work with that hero.
However, ‘Geetha Govindam’ which Vijay had committed before ‘Arjun Reddy’ faced lot of problems with regard to the heroine. Director Parshuram said an interview that they could not start the film for nine months as they were not getting a heroine. He said they contacted 20 heroines of Tollywood and other languages but all refused to do the film.
Parshuram said since Vijay had no fame and image before ‘Arjun Reddy’, no heroine came forward to work with him…Finally Rashmika agreed but since her dates were not available, they had to wait three months for her. The director said he saw her, told her the story and she looked suitable for Geetha’s role. He said both have equal roles in the film. He believes the chemistry between the two is the major attraction of the film. He is confident that the film will definitely become a hit.
