Vijay Deverakonda, who was last seen in Taxiwaala, will be next seen playing a professional biker in Anand Annamalai’s Hero. The project, which will also star Malavika Mohanan, had its official launch ceremony on Sunday in Hyderabad.

The film is being bankrolled by Mythri Movie Makers who, via a tweet on Wednesday night, announced that Hero will be released in all the south Indian languages including Tamil.

Hero was supposed to go on the floors from April 22 onwards in New Delhi. For some reason, the shoot was postponed by a few weeks. The makers are yet to reveal rest of the cast and crew.

On Sunday, filmmaker Koratala Siva graced the event as chief guest. He canned the first shot and handed over the bound script to the director to commence shoot.


This is Malavika’s third film after Beyond the Clouds and Petta. After working in Petta, Malavika had said in an interview to Indian Express that she’s open to work across industries and languages.

“Now, I am open to doing films in any industry be it Telugu, Hindi, Tamil or Kannada. I think good cinema is good cinema. There are people in every industry I would love to work with. I have grown up and been inspired by Mani Ratnam, AR Rahman and even Rajinikanth. In Telugu, I think SS Rajamouli is kick-ass. So, I think it is silly for actors to restrain themselves to a particular industry. At the end of the day, I am okay working in any industry,” she had said.

Meanwhile, Deverakonda has a busy lineup. Having recently completed shooting for Dear Comrade, in which he plays a student leader; he will next be seen in a yet-untitled Telugu romantic anthology film with director Kranthi Madhav. This project will also star Raashi Khanna, Catherine Tresa, Aishwarya Rajesh and Isabelle De.
