Vijay Deverakonda starrer World Famous Lover hits the screens today. Known for his work in Arjun Reddy and Dear Comrade among others, Deverakonda has made a name for himself with romantic dramas. As the title suggests, World Famous Lover is also a love story, but this might be the last love story for Deverakonda for the time being. The actor said, “World Famous Lover will be my last love story for a while.”
Alongside Deverakonda, the film also stars Raashi Khanna, Catherine Tresa, Izabelle Leite and Aishwarya Rajessh. It has been directed by K Kranthi Madhav.
In a media interaction in Hyderabad, Vijay Deverakonda spoke about the comparisons of his upcoming film with Arjun Reddy and said, “Even if I grow a beard for an action film or a science-fiction movie, people will still compare it to Arjun Reddy. It is unavoidable for me. Arjun Reddy is a kind of film that will be remembered for generations. So, I am not concerned about people comparing my new films with it. We can show the variations in love stories as well.”
Deverakonda added, “Geetha Govindam and Arjun Reddy are love stories that are very different from each other. In World Famous Lover (WFL), you will see three different love stories, and one of them shares a similarity with Arjun Reddy. But, overall, it has a unique format. I have never seen this kind of film before.”
Sharing a clip with Ragini Khanna from the movie, Vijay Deverakonda urged fans to watch World Famour Lover via a tweet.

User @kanthify wrote on Twitter, “#WorldFamousLover is a test of your patience. A torture on all levels. Only one story was good. Others are all forced. Didn’t expect much from Kranthi Madhav but this is just not done.”
“Earlier, I used to believe that the concept of love is nonsensical. I went through several phases when it came to love. Now I am in the phase where I believe in love. I think it’s beautiful and we all need love in our lives. Love is the strongest and most important feeling for us. We all should have people in our lives who love us,” Vijay Deverakonda told reporters.
In an interaction with journalists, Vijay Deverakonda said, ‘World Famous Lover will be my last love story, at least for a while. Within two or three months, you will see my new phase as an actor and as a person. I know what I kind of movies I am going to do in the next two years.’
“World Famous Lover was one of the hardest films that I have done so far. Mentally and physically, it took a huge toll on me. I had to show physical variations, and I shot it in different makeups across multiple locations around the world for a long duration,” shared Vijay Deverakonda.
Deverakonda will soon be making his debut in Hindi movies with a film titled Fighter. The film is also being shot in Telugu.
