The phenomenal successes of Pellichoopulu, Arjun Reddy and Geetha Govindam made Vijay Deverakonda a crazy hero among younger generation heroes. Megastar Chiranjeevi, himself, proclaimed in a public dais that Vijay became a 'Star'.
However, having gone through the pre release and post release businesses of his recent offings, doubts are being expressed by the critics on Vijay's star status.
According to critics, a star hero's film should do more Rs.40+ crore pre release business and should collect more than Rs.40+ crores. But then, Vijay's Dear Comrade, NOTA and World Famous Lover couldn't live upto the expectations both with the pre biz and theatrical business. His Geetha Govindam collected Rs.70 crores share. Vijay needs break this film's record with another film. Wish that his upcoming film Liger would make his goal achieved.
WFL was directed by Kranthi Madhav under Creative Commercials. The movie has Raashi Khanna, Catherine Tresa, Aishwarya Rajesh and Izabelle as female leads.
