Vijay Deverakonda and Janhvi Kapoor starrer ‘Fighter’ shall go on
floors from 13 January. Director Puri Jagannath brings Ramya
Krishnan on board.
She will be playing the role of Vijay’s mother in the film. The movie is multilingual and will be releasing at the same time in both Bollywood and in the south film industry.
Ramya Krishnan is such a treat to watch and getting her in this project is a cherry on the cake. Ramya has always been a much-loved choice for both filmmakers and the audience.
She got famous all over the country for nailing it with her famous performance as ‘Shivagami’ in ‘Baahubali’. She stunned the audience with her latest release ‘Queen’ in which she played the role of an actress turned politician.
‘Fighter’ will showcase Vijay in a completely different avatar. As the name says it all, he is a fighter. Vijay will be seen packing punches and performing heavy action sequences.
He underwent severe training in martial arts and prepared himself with a tough fitness regime. So has Janhvi, she hasn’t missed a day at her pilates session with Pilates instructor Namrata Purohit.
She is often papped leaving her fitness studio. Janhvi manages to indulge herself even at late night workout sessions while juggling meetings for other projects at the day.
It’s good to see both the actors see giving their all to get into the skin of the character. We can sense some serious prepping up for the movie and the excitement is already there.
Janhvi might also have to do the dubbing session for her character as the movie is multilingual. As for Vijay, he loves dubbing for his part and has never asked for any dubbing artists even in his earlier multilingual movies.
He originally started off with Telugu films which are his mother tongue and eventually got into Tamil films. Despite not knowing a word of Tamil he has got hold of the accent and lingo with perfection.
His last release ‘Dear Comrade’ was a big release in all four southern languages: Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada. Vijay’s next release ‘World Famous Lover’ shall hit the screens on Valentine’s Day.
‘Fighter’ is a dream come true project for Janhvi Kapoor as she has been in awe of Vijay Deverakonda and she gets a chance to not only do a movie with the superstar but also gets paired opposite him.
This movie is close to her heart and emotional because she will be stepping
into the industry which is her mother Srideviji’s native.
