Vijay Deverakonda is on an experimental spree. He began with Pelli Choopulu, which was a comedy love drama then there was Arjun Reddy, which was an intense love drama now he signed up a political drama. This upcoming film, NOTA, is being made in both Telugu and Tamil and is directed by Anand Shankar.
Interestingly, NOTA would be the Tamil debut for Vijay. Speaking about this film Mr. Deverakonda said, ‘Just after the release of Arjun Reddy, producer Gnanavel Raja brought me this script and was after me to hear the narration. He told me it’s from a very talented director called Anand Shankar. Even though I wasn’t interested in doing a Tamil film, I decided to listen to the script for his sake. When I heard it the first time, it was after a tiring day of a shoot and I remember telling Anand that he should narrate it again on a day when I’m not so tired and feeling zoned out. He agreed and we met after a week and this time when I heard the script, I immediately jumped at the opportunity.’
Mehreen Pirzada is the lead actress of NOTA. The duo, Vijay Deverakonda – Mehreen, previously featured in the Telugu Mahasabhalu Holi song.
Meanwhile Vijay will be seen as Vijay Antony in Nag Ashwin’s Mahanati, which is releasing on the 9th of May.
