Karan Johar and Vijay Deverakonda’s Friendship: What’s the Real Story?

Karan Johar and Vijay Deverakonda’s Friendship: What’s the Real Story?

Karan Johar has taken a  shine to Telugu superstar Vijay Deverakonda. When  Vijay’s  last film Dear Comrade  released, Karan invited  Vijay to fly down  from Hyderabad to Mumbai for a screening. And Karan  loved Dear Comrade. He bought the remake rights  for a  staggering amount and  then hastily  pushed the remake plans aside when Dear Comrade  underperformed at the Telugu  box-office. And  now Karan  has  pitched in as co-producer  for Vijay Deverakonda’s Telugu  masala dosa Fighter, writer-director  Puri Jagannaath’s  “sure-shot” pledge to give  Deverakonda’s  fans  that massy   film his career needs…or so Puri thinks. He has been bragging to his  friends that “this”(Fighter) is what Vijay Deverakonda needs.

Karan Johar seems  to have  fallen for  Puri and his producer-partner actress Charmee’s sales-pitch. Though  the final deal  has not been inked as  yet, it is  pretty much a sealed deal now  between Karan Johar and Puri. Yes, KJo has pitched in as co-producer  in Fighter.

A source close to the development reveals, “Karan wanted to launch Vijay  Deverakonda in Bollywood with the Hindi remake of Dear Comrade. When that  didn’t work in Telugu, he was on the look-out for an original Hindi  script  for  Vijay’s launch.  It was Vijay who suggested that Karan  jump in as co-producer  for Puri’s film and  thereby felicitate a Hindi version  of  Fighter.” Vijay Deverakonda shot to fame with Arjun Reddy that was remade into Hindi as Kabir Singh starring Shahid Kapoor. Kabir Singh turned out to be one of the best movies of the year.
