Vijay Devarakonda who started this year on a dull note with his latest release World Famous Lover ending up as a disaster quickly moved on to his next movie with Star Director Puri Jagannadh.
Vijay and Puri are joining hands for a movie titled Fighter which is said to be made on a record budget of around 50cr. 50cr may seem normal for many people but this is record by a mile for tier 2 heroes.
Fighter is being made as a Pan India film with simultaneous releases planned in Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam. It is being produced by Karan Johar under Dharma productions and Charmee under Puri Connects. Ananya Pandey has been confirmed to play as the female lead opposite Vijay. It is scheduled to release in October last week.
