Fans of renowned actor Vijay Deverakonda were in for a delightful surprise recently when they had the opportunity to meet and interact with him during the shoot of his upcoming film, “Family Star,” in New York. Vijay, known for his charismatic on-screen presence, took the time to connect with his fans and share memorable moments with them.
Interaction with Fans
Amidst his hectic shooting schedule, Vijay Deverakonda made sure to organize a meet for his devoted fans in the city. Despite the chilly winter weather, the actor donned dark winter clothing and greeted his fans with a warm smile.
He posed for photographs and engaged in friendly conversations with everyone who turned up to meet him.
Some fortunate fans even stumbled upon him while he was shooting outdoors, and he graciously obliged them with selfies between shots. The genuine connection Vijay shared with his fans truly made their day.
Teaser Screened at Times Square
The buzz around “Family Star” reached new heights when the teaser of the film was screened on one of the billboards at Times Square. Director Parasuram Petla, visibly delighted, witnessed his work being showcased at this iconic location.
The teaser attracted the attention of both passersby and tourists, who paused to catch a glimpse of the much-anticipated film.
This unique promotion strategy added an extra layer of excitement and anticipation among Vijay’s fans.
Originally slated for a Sankranthi release in January, “Family Star” has encountered a delay in production.
The film’s producer, Dil Raju, addressed the issue during a press meet and shared that visa complications for the US were the primary cause of the delay.
However, with the visa issue resolved, the shooting is currently taking place in the US until December 19.
Upon their return to India, the team plans to wrap up the remaining scenes within a 15-day schedule. If everything goes according to plan, the film may be released in the upcoming summer season.
Vijay Deverakonda is on a roll, determined to showcase his versatility as an actor. Following the lukewarm response to “World Famous Lover” and “Liger,” he made a triumphant comeback with his latest release, “Kushi,” alongside Samantha Ruth Prabhu.
The film received favorable reviews and performed well at the box office. Currently, Vijay is engrossed in shooting for “Family Star,” where he portrays the role of a middle-class man from Andhra.
Additionally, he has also resumed work on an untitled project with director Gowtam Tinnanuri. Although there have been speculations about Rashmika Mandanna replacing Sreeleela in the film, an official announcement is yet to be made.
