Vijay Explains Why He Is Not Working With Debut Directors!

Telugu star Vijay Deverakonda is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film, “Family Star,” amidst high anticipation from his fans. However, a recent shift in his selection of directors has sparked discussions within the industry.

Deverakonda, known for collaborating with fresh talent in his early career, now seems to favor established directors like Parasuram, Puri Jagannadh, and Shiva Nirvana. He has also signed projects with Gautham Tinnanuri and other prominent figures.

Addressing media queries about this change, Deverakonda offered a balanced perspective. He acknowledged the importance of fostering new talent:

Championing Newcomers: He emphasized the need for established actors to provide opportunities for aspiring directors. By not monopolizing experienced directors, he creates space for them to work with newcomers.
Experience Matters: Deverakonda highlights the value of a director’s proven track record. He points out that his early success stemmed from collaborating with directors like Tarun Bhascker and Sandeep Reddy Vanga during their initial forays.
Deverakonda explained his selection process further:

Evaluating Directorial Vision: He uses a script, synopsis, or storyboard to gain insight into a director’s vision and creative approach. A director’s previous work provides a more comprehensive understanding of their style and thought process.
Budgetary Considerations: Deverakonda acknowledges the increased financial stakes involved in his projects compared to his earlier films like “Pellichoopulu.” With larger budgets come greater responsibility towards producers and investors. He prioritizes projects with a solid foundation, requiring a thorough understanding of both script and director.
In essence, Deverakonda’s shift in directorial preference reflects a calculated approach. While acknowledging the importance of nurturing new talent, he prioritizes working with experienced directors to ensure the success of his bigger-budget ventures.
