Nithin used to be the top rated hero among Telangana based actors till now. But Nithin is currently stuck in a hole with a hattrick of flops. As Nithin is looking for a way to come out of the hole, another Telangana actor is going from strength to strength with each outing. He is none other than Vijay Deverakonda, the latest heartthrob of Telugu youth.
Vijay Deverakonda proved his worth again with Geetha Govindam that opened to terrific numbers all over. It has collected more than Rs. 9.5 Crore share on its first day, which is one of the highest ever in films featuring medium range films. It grossed over $400K from premieres in USA to better Nani's MCA and Mahanati premiere records.
Vijay is undoubtedly the flavor of the season and the fastest rising stars in Telugu film industry today. Pelli Choopulu, Arjun Reddy and Geetha Govindam have shown three different sides of Vijay as an actor. He is a versatile talent who can pull off any character. He can play extremely aggressive characters like Arjun Reddy and look believable in equally submissive characters like Govindam. He has surely replaced Nithin as the top rated actor among Telangana heroes and is on course to sideline many other actors in his league given his rising popularity with each film.
