In a few hours, the clock will strike 12, and everything that ‘is’, will become ‘was’. Too many memories, too many moments, too many films, too much nostalgia. And, as we try to sum up the year that we will leave behind, forever, we decided to take a look at the biggest newsmakers of 2019. And, here are few of our top picks.
Actor Vijay Deverakonda has managed to stay in the news, all year long. With his films, clothing line, production ventures, and simply because of his words, Vijay has made headlines. Amongst the many, let’s look at the four most prominent ones. His film, Dear Comrade, failed to impress audiences, after successful movies like Geetha Govindam. His first film as a producer, Meeku Maathrame Chepta, also met with lukewarm response. Vijay was the only actor who actively came ahead and spoke about the pressing situation of Nalla Malla forests.
Apart from this, the actor was constantly in the news due to his controversial statements about the recently- released Kabir Singh, starring Shahid Kapoor, which is a remake of Arjun Reddy. He maintained that he hadn’t seen the Hindi remake, but supported the storyteller’s vision. Moreover, his constant visits to Mumbai, got the press talking about his Bollywood debut. Filmmaker Karan Johar has a reputation for being the ‘launch-specialist’, and he has apparently signed Vijay for a Bollywood film. Hopefully, we will find out more details about it soon.
