Vijay Deverakonda becomes the first south Indian actor to have garnered eight million followers on Instagram. He managed to dodge Stars like Mahesh Babu and Allu Arjun to reach the magic number first. Even the stars of Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada industries could not garner the feat.
The actor has 1.7 million followers and 3.6 million followers on Twitter and Facebook respectively. Vijay is currently starring in Puri Jagannadh’s yet-to-be-titled film. It is the actor’s first-ever Pan-India film. Karan Johar is onboard for the film as the Presenter.
Tentatively titled Fighter, the movie was supposed to release for Late Summer but it has been postponed to next year due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. The movie’s story is set in Mumbai and there are reports that the backdrop will be changed since Maharashtra is recording the highest number of Corona Cases in the country.Follow @THEPANIPURI
