Telugu audience is excited for Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s work
Before making a Bollywood debut, Sandeep Reddy Vanga made a mark in Tollywood with his debut directorial, Arjun Reddy, starring Vijay Deverakonda and Shalini Pandey. It was a huge success; it has become a modern-day cult over time. Even its official Hindi remake, Kabir Singh, attained cult status and made blockbuster earnings.
So, the Telugu audience is very well aware of Vanga’s work and his passion for filmmaking, and they’re eagerly looking forward to his upcoming film with Ranbir Kapoor. Apart from that, the trailer, released yesterday, has taken everyone by storm and elevated the film’s buzz. It is helping the biggie in attracting massive pre-sales.
