Vijay Deverakonda is surely the new star everyone is looking up to in India. After Blockbuster Arjun Reddy, he is back with another Telugu film Dear Comrade and it has clearly set the Box Office on fire on its opening day.
As per early trends, the film has collected 17-19 crores (gross) including all versions. This is a super cool number for Day 1 and it seems the idea of releasing the film pan India with Hindi prints has paid off.
Now the film should show growth in the weekend to emerge a big Hit at the Box Office.
Meanwhile, Vijay still can’t believe he enjoys the kind of stardom everybody says he does.
Talking about the same he told IANS earlier, “I don’t know if this stardom people say I enjoy is true. I’m still worried if people will turn up at the theatres to watch my films. I’m still clueless about stardom because I don’t know how to measure it. Stardom only makes sense when it converts into footfalls in the cinema hall. It’s the only physical transaction that justifies it.”
Recently, Karan Johar has announced that he will be remaking the film in Bollywood under his production house Dharma. There were reports that he will be casting Dhadak couple Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter in the lead however he denied it.
The filmmaker on Thursday evening tweeted: “All the best and big success to the team of ‘Dear Comrade’ on July 26! Also a clarification! No lead actors have been considered or approached for the film as yet.”
Karan stressed that the planning for the film is still work in progress.
“The planning for this lovely film is underway,” he added.
