Vijay Deverakonda is unarguably one of the hotshot heroes in the Indian film industry. Even though he is less than 10 films old, Vijay gained a massive fan following among the audiences within just four years. He now has over 8 million followers on Instagram. He is the first South Indian actor to achieve this mark.
The fans of Vijay are celebrating the achievement by trending #8MillionRowdiesOnInstagram. Vijay has dodged many other star heroes and reached this milestone. The heroes who are behind Vijay are Allu Arjun (7.6 million), Mahesh Babu (5.2 million), Prabhas (4.8 million) and Rana Daggubati (4 million). This is quite an incredible achievement for Vijay as he does it in only four years of stardom. This proves that he is truly a pan-Indian star now. Scoring hits like Pelli Choopulu, Arjun Reddy, Geeta Govindam and Taxiwaala brought immense craze to Vijay.
The actor is currently working for an untitled film under the direction of Puri Jagannath. Fighter and Liger are the titles under consideration for this movie. Vijay is playing the role of a boxer in it. The film will have a pan-India release in the languages, Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada. Bollywood beauty Ananya Panday is playing the female lead in it. Puri Jagannath, Charmme Kaur and Karan Johar are jointly bankrolling the project. This action entertainer will hit the screens in 2021.
