Vijay Deverakonda, who is gearing up for his Bollywood debut, seems to be the latest celebrity soon to become a part of OTT platform.
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, OTT platforms are gaining acceptance among viewers in the country with an increasing number of filmmakers opting to stream movies through this medium.
Making use of the situation, several A-Listers of Bollywood and South Movie industry are also trying their luck on these platforms as they provide a wide audience reach across the nation without the barriers of language and region.
The Arjuna Reddy star, who is keen to prove his mettle across the country, seems to have decided to take the OTT platform route to reach out to new audience.
According to Glute.com, Vijay is all set to do a small show on OTT as his Bollywood debut ‘Liger’ has been pushed to 2022 for release.
“Though it is not clear whether he will act in it or not, Vijay will surely produce it,” said the report.
Reportedly, during the lockdown, Vijay has heard a number of stories and has zeroed in on one as of now.
Sources said that a newcomer will be helming this show which will be completed in a limited time frame.
However, it will be interesting to see if his Dear Comrade co-star and good friend Rashmika Mandanna will also follow his footsteps and collaborate for an OTT series.
As, fans of both Vijay and Rashmika are eagerly waiting to watch their favourite couple’s magical chemistry on screen, an OTT show might be the perfect fit for them.
On the work front, both the stars are presently busy with their respective Bollywood debuts.
