'Geetha Govindam' and 'Taxiwaala' star Vijay Deverakonda is on the news again as he stated his interest on acting in Bollywood. His all recent films are commercial success. This year was a big one for him. His film NOTA and Taxiwaala earned good reputation. He also appeared in a important role in multi lingual movie 'Mahanati' too. Latest news is that he will be starring in Kabir Khan's '83' as his Bollywood debut. We still don't know whether he will be playing a cameo role or not.
In this film he is playing the role of Krishnamachari Srikanth, the iconic cricketer. This film will be based on 1983 cricket world cup or Prudential Cup. India won that world cup against West Indies with Kapil Dev's leadership. Ranveer Singh is reported to play the role of Kapil Dev. Other casts are not declared yet. We have to wait for official reports from the makers. Kabir Khan's last directorial was 'Tubelight' which got released in 2017. Salman Khan acted as lead in 'Tubelight' and Shah Rukh Khan had a cameo appearance also. In spite of that, the film was a total massacre and received very bad critics review.
