It has been causing quite the buzz among audiences due to the exclusive first time pairing of Samantha Ruth Prabhu and Vijay Devarakonda. Amidst the release of the poster and music months ago, Samantha announced officially about her diagnosis of myositis.

The director of the film is Shiva Nirvana who has also directed films like “Majili”, “Ninnu Kori” and “Tuck Jagadish” which fared well at the box office for the most part.

Vijay Devarakonda is an Indian film actor who has predominantly worked in Telugu films. He is most famously known for his work in the film “Arjun Reddy” by Sandeep Vanga Reddy in 2017 after which he gained immense popularity for this role and the film was remade in Hindi as “Kabir Singh” acted by Shahid Kapoor and “Aditya Varma” in Tamil acted by Dhruv Vikram.
Vijay Devarakonda is popular among his fans for his nonchalant and cool attitude about the things around him and his splendid performances in the romantic comedy films he has done earlier. After the failure of his film “World Famous Lover” he said he would not be doing romantic films anymore and got offered an action film in Bollywood which he accepted and worked towards tremendously for 2 years. The film “Liger” came out in 2022 and was not well received by any of his audiences.
But his fans surely look forward to his romantic comedy film with Samantha and the response seems to be good towards the trailer and soundtrack.
Samantha Ruth Prabhu
Samantha Ruth Prabhu has been active in the Indian Film industry since 2009 and debuted in “Ye Maaya Chesave” with Naga Chaitanya who she fell in love with and married later on. She carried on doing films primarily in Tamil and Telugu. Few of her most famous films are “Eega”, “Manam” and “Attarintiki Daredi” all of which are classics. She recently parted ways with Naga Chaitanya and then featured in a famous song from “Pushpa- The rise”, “Oo Antava” which gained a lot of fame.
Amidst filming “Kushi” she took to Instagram to post about her diagnosis of Myositis, an immune system attacking itself through inflammation of muscles. This particular condition has no cure as such but can be treated symptomatically. She gradually recovered from it and proceeded to film the Indian adaptation of Priyanka Chopra’s “Citadel” with Varun Dhawan and recently posted about taking a year off working to focus on herself and to prioritize her health.
Vijay Devarakonda on the diagnosis
Vijay Devarakonda on being asked about Samantha’s diagnosis said that he and the director of the film did not take her seriously when she would complain about being in a lot of pain during the shooting of the film. They would ask her what her problem is and that she looks beautiful, almost jokingly.
But when later consulted and was made aware of such a diagnosis, he felt awful about not taking it seriously.
