Vijay Deverakonda was cruising ahead in his career when he scored big hits in quick succession. But he couldn't repeat the magic of Arjun Reddy or Geetha Govindam with the movies that followed.
Dear Comrade's failure has put him on the back foot that he is being overcautious about his upcoming film World Famous Lover.
Vijay is not willing to release WFL until he is fully satisfied with the output. The filming of WFL is nearly complete, but the makers are yet to finalize the release date.
Meanwhile, his Hero movie with a debut director has been pushed back as they decided to rework on the script. Puri's Fighter will start rolling from January.
The Arjun Reddy actor is not confident enough to take risks with new directors at the moment.
Even his maiden production Meeku Matrame Chepta that was rejected by the film lovers also was directed by a debutant.
After Dear Comrade and MMC, Vijay is now looking to work with experienced campaigners.
