Despite ‘Pelli Choopulu’ being his first hit, it was ‘Arjun Reddy’ that made Vijay Devarakonda what he is today. He became a star overnight and the success of ‘Geetha Govindham’ just added to his immense craze. After that, he received two flops like ‘NOTA’ and ‘Dear Comrade’. Though ‘Taxiwaala’ was a hit, it was made a long time ago before he gained stardom.
He tested waters in production with ‘Meeku Matrame Cheptha’ which turned out to be unsuccessful. Currently, he is working on two projects and there is no buzz over those films.
On the flipside, Vijay is getting the royal treatment in Bollywood circles. He is treated like a big star in North despite none of his films being dubbed in Hindi. Recently, a popular film channel, ‘Film Companion’ conducted an interview featuring stars across India. Vijay was given an opportunity to represent Tollywood in that debate and they made him sit amongst the A-grade artists like Manoj Bajpayee, Vijay Sethupathi, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and others.
It was all thanks to ‘Arjun Reddy’ and the noise it made across the nation that made Bollywood treat him as a sensation.
