Just over a week or so after the release of Baahubali: The Beginning, Tamil superstar Vijay’s Jilla had hit the screens across the Telugu states. Interestingly, it was probably the only film that managed to sustain the competition and stayed on for a while in the theatres. In fact, the film even earned the producers, huge profits — apparently double of what they had invested. Now, yet again, the actor’s recent release, Bairavaa, is set to release just a few weeks after Baahubali: The Conclusion. While this is just a coincidence, it does seem uncanny and many are hoping the magic could repeat. Titled Vijaya Bhairava, the film is set to hit the screens sometime in May, as announced by the film’s Telugu producer Bellam Ramakrishna Reddy.
Starring Keerthy Suresh as the female lead, the film is directed by Bharathan and has music by Santhosh Narayananan. Vennela Kanti has written the lyrics, while Ghantasla Rathnakumar has penned the dialogues. It is to be seen if this film has a similar story as Jilla.
