Vijay Deverakonda’s ‘Fighter’ to rope in Kiara Advani


It is learnt that Kiara Advani may be roped in as the female lead in Vijay Deverakonda’s upcoming film.

Vijay Deverakonda plays a martial arts expert with a stutter in the film directed by Puri Jagannadh. The groundwork for this project is on and the shooting will commence next year. Ever since this film was announced, speculations on Vijay Deverakonda’s lead pair turned out to be the hot topic. Kiara Advani and Vijay had worked together in a commercial and share a good rapport following which the hero reportedly suggested that she would be the apt choice to play the role in Fighter.

Apparently, it is a meaty role and Kiara is interested to be a part of the project. She is currently in the process of adjusting her dates and an official announcement is expected once she signs on the dotted lines. Vijay currently has the Telugu flick ‘World Famous Lover’ in his kitty. Directed by Kranthi Madhav, the film has the hero as a playboy.

Vijay Deverakonda’s last release was Dear Comrade. Directed by Bharat Kamma, the film was also produced by Mythri Movie Makers. Kiara Advani’s debut in Tollywood was with Mahesh Babu starrer ‘Bharat Ane Nenu’, which turned out to be a huge hit. She was last seen playing the female lead in ‘Vinaya Vidheya Rama’ as a partner of Ram Charan Teja.
