He has big plans and will be announcing them very soon. Vijay Deverakonda is excited about his film ‘Geetha Govindam’. It’s a light romantic story and different from Arjun Reddy. The actor talks about his film and more….

Why do you look so tensed?

I am not tensed but stressed out. I never ever thought that an actor's job is that difficult as I have been shooting for the past one year without any gap. This has taken a toll on my body and I am waiting for the film to release so that I can cut off for a week and just eat and sleep for days.

How are you dealing with this mad rush of stardom?

I don't even have time to enjoy my stardom. Times are moving so fast that my career is going ahead without my knowledge. Too many things are going on and in all of this, I am committing many mistakes as well. If I make some career mistakes in the future, I take full responsibility and will make sure to give back all the love which my fans are giving me right now.

What made you choose Geetha Govindam?

I love watching family oriented love stories but hate doing them. I okayed this project only because of Bunny Vasu. He was the one who told me to do such a film so that I can reach a larger set of audience. As I cannot keep on doing Arjun Reddy type films, I have attempted this soft love story.

How different is Geetha Govindam from Arjun Reddy?

Both are poles apart. If Arjun Reddy took a serious way of getting back his love, Geetha Govindam will be shown on a light note. The roles are different and the way I approached them is also contrasting. The only thing similar is the love story.

What's your response to the leaks that happened?

Drama is a part of life and that is happening in my life now. I am shattered by the leaks and my team is doing the best to stop such things. Our lives depend on movies and one should think ten times before doing such mischievous stuff.

Rumors about launching your brother's film?

I am not launching my brother and you need to ask his career plans to him only. Coming to the production side, I will announce something exciting very soon.

Why is Taxiwala being delayed?

Frankly, the CG work which was done was not worthy. So, we are redoing the entire VFX work and this is taking time. Trust me, when this film comes out it will surely make an impact.
