Vijay Deverakonda's next release Dear Comrade will be his first release this year. His fans who saw him in three releases last year are getting withdrawal symptoms. Laughs Vijay, "I am missing myself on screen.But to me it was never about quantity. I would rather do one film a year. But it better be something that audiences haven't seen me do before. That I had so many releases last year was just a coincidence."
