It is known that action director Puri Jagannadh signed Vijay Deverakonda for his upcoming film titled ‘Fighter’. There was news that the director was trying to rope in Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor as the leading lady of the film.
According to sources, Jhanvi Kapoor refused to play this part after she couldn’t manage her dates for the film. 19-year-old Ananya Pandey who had made her debut with ‘Student of the Year 2’ is reportedly set to romance Vijay Deverakonda in ‘Fighter’.
The sources also revealed that the film has gone on floors in Mumbai today where it will be majorly shot. It is a fresh love story loaded with action sequences and the hindi version will be produced by Karan Johar.
