Earlier, South Indian heartthrob Vijay Deverakonda had signed up to release his Bollywood debut Liger. It is shoved aside for the time being due to Covid restrictions but meanwhile, he has signed up two big projects down South.
One is with Shiva Nirvana and the other with Koratala Siva. It is rumored that one of the projects will have Vijay star with a top Bollywood actress.
Bollywood Hungama, revealed that “Katrina has been roped in to romance Vijay in the bilingual that is being planned as a pan India release. The films are being mounted on a huge scale. And with this, Katrina will now star in films with both the Vijays. She also has Sriram Raghavan’s next Merry Christmas with Vijay Setupathi lined up this year.”
Apparently, the makers wanted to pick up top faces for a wider audience. Sources have said
“Although it’s a South film, it is being readied for an all India release and Katrina’s presence will push the film up North. The details of the film are not known but it’s a big one for Katrina.”
The movie is expecting a major pan India appeal.
Katrina is also set to work in Sriram Raghavan’s next movie Merry Christmas starring Vijay Setupathi. With this, she will have worked with two major faces of the South Indian film industry.
Vijay’s Bollywood debut Liger had also scheduled to release its first teaser on 9th May before covid spiked in India. It was shot in both Telugu and Hindi simultaneously and is set to release in five languages Telugu, Kannada, Tamil, Malayalam, and Hindi.
