Photos: Ananya Panday and Vijay Deverakonda team up for Fighter

Vijay Deverakonda is going through some troubled waters as his last outing, World Famous Lover didn’t exactly set the box-office ringing. The film had hit the theatres this Valentine’s Day but was panned by both the audience and critics. Nevertheless, it seems the actor has moved on swiftly to his next project, Fighter.

The film is directed by Puri Jagannadh and is believed to be based on the life of a boxer. Interestingly, Bollywood actress Ananya Panday has been roped in to play the female lead in the film. Fighter is set be a Telugu-Hindi bilingual, which will also be released in other languages.

Director, Jagannadh took to Twitter welcoming Ananya and wrote, “Happy to Welcome on board Gorgeous @ananyapandayy for our Pan India venture with my hero @TheDeverakonda produced by @karanjohar @Charmmeofficial @apoorvamehta18 Having fun directing this cool venture (sic)”

The film is scheduled to go on floors soon. According to sources, Vijay Deverakonda has been prepping hard for the film with some boxing lessons in order to nail his character. Reports also suggest that he will be sporting long hair in Fighter.

We hope the film does wonders for both Vijay and Ananya.
