It’s been a little over a year since Mrunal Thakur debuted in the South industry with Sita Ramam, and she is already one of the industry’s most sought-after actors, with several major projects in the works in which she will be paired opposite big names. She recently announced her next Telugu film, in which she will star alongside Vijay Deverakonda. The film is currently known as VD13. Previously, she made headlines for her upcoming film Hi Nanna, in which she co-stars with Telugu actor Nani.
Mrunal, who has been dubbed the “rising star” of the southern film industry by both fans and critics, describes the opportunity to work with such diverse actors as “surreal.”
Mrunal states, “Right from the start when I started working on Sita Ramam, I was instantly welcomed with extreme warmth and love from the members and people from the south film industry. The industry has some of the finest actors in the country and I am grateful that I am getting a chance to share screen space with them. Whether it’s Dulquer, Nani and now Vijay, they are such different actors with very different fan bases, it’s never a dull day for me on the set. The love I got for Sita Ramam, I hope I receive the same love for my upcoming movies– Hi Naana and #VD13”.
Speaking of Vijay, she revealed , “I’m looking forward to working with Vijay as I do know that we can learn together and from each other as actors. Currently we have started prep and the shoot of the film will start soon, and sharing screen space with Vijay is something I’m excited about. Whatever roles he does on screen, he has this great ability to bring this great spark on screen when he’s in front of the camera. With each passing film, he’s given such memorable characters which have become etched into our memories be it Dr. Arjun Reddy Deshmukh in Arjun Reddy or Vijay Anthony in Mahanati”.
The crew of #VD13 will begin filming soon. After the success of Geetha Govindam, Vijay and director Parasuram are reuniting for this project.
