Vijay Deverakonda and Rashmika Mandanna are one of the most loved on-screen pair among the -goers, who mesmerised with their crackling chemistry in Geetha Govindam and Dear Comrade. While we want to see this duo in more films, it will surprise you to know that Kirik party actress was quite scared of the Arjun Reddy star. In an old interview with The News Minute, Rashmika said, “Nothing has changed. I was scared when I first shot with him as I’m scared of new people. But then, Vijay is a very chill fellow and I found it easy to work with him. Shooting for this film was easier as I knew his frequency, his vibe and it was easy to match up to it – I didn’t even have to try as we’ve been friends for quite a long time now. Our characters rub off on each other and the best part about our friendship is that I don’t have to try hard to understand the guy.”
On the work front, Vijay Deverakonda will be next seen in his first pan-India film, which is directed by Puri Jagannadh. According to Mumbai Mirror, Vijay Deverakonda underwent hardcore training and followed a strict diet to prepare for his character. The Arjun Reddy star also visited Thailand to learn mixed martial arts and various other fight forms. In the film, Deverakonda will be seen flaunting six-pack abs. Apart from Vijay, Fighter will also feature Ananya Panday, Ronit Roy and Baahubali star Ramya Krishnan in pivotal roles.
On the other hand, Rashmika will start the shooting of Allu Arjun’s Pushpa after the lockdown gets over. The actor and director Sukumar’s collaboration in the past has been very successful, with films like Arya and Arya 2, which in turn helped Arjun gain popularity in the industry. The makers recently revealed that they will spend Rs 6 crore for a six-minute action sequence, which will be mounted on a lavish scale.
