Vijay Deverakonda’s one of the upcoming films has been titled Dear Comrade which will be directed by newcomer Bharat Kamma. Said to be an intense drama, Dear Comrade was announced on the eve of Vijay’s birthday. However, the title Dear Comrade has led to speculations that the film could be a remake of Malayalam hit film CIA: Comrade in America which stars Dulquer Salmaan and Karthika Muralidharan in the lead role. But the director of Dear Comrade, Bharat Kamma, denies these reports and says the two films are different from each other. “Our film is not inspired from the Malayalam film. It is a different project,” Bharat Kamma was quoted as saying by Kochi Times. CIA: Comrade in America was the story of a young man who travels to the US in search of his lady love which was played by Karthika Muralidharan. Interestingly, Vijay Deverakonda and Dulquer Salmaan have acted in Mahanati, which just released, however, they don’t share any screen space in the biopic on iconic actress Savitri.
Dear Comrade will be Vijay Deverakonda’s one of the films in the exciting line up of films he has. Rashmika Mandanna will be seen playing Vijay’s love interest in Dear Comrade. The actress took to Twitter confirming this development and wrote, “Dear Comrade, While you’re fighting for what you love, Here’s wishing you a happy birthday. So glad that I’m a part of this project.”
