Vijay Deverakonda Will Do A Hindi Film But Conditions Apply
The actor told Anupama Chopra, "It is interesting....doing Hindi is interesting but I want to do something that is Telugu and Hindi. Something that works back home and here."
The Actor Isn't Comfortable With Mumbai's Fast-paced Life
Vijay said, "I can't see myself shifting here at an apartment as my friends are back home. I love the laid back, lazy lifestyle. I can't work like 5 guys every day photographing me. It serves the purpose but I don't think I would like it every day and I think Mumbai is too fast for me. I like to do things on my own terms."
He Is Happy That Every Industry Is Respectful Of Each Other's Art
He further added, "Now cinema has reached the space where you don't have to be in Bombay to make... it is beautiful that we are all aware of each other and connected...so respectful of each other's art. It has become a cool space."
This Is The Reason Why Vijay Deverakonda Turned Down Kabir Singh
When asked why he didn't star in the Hindi remake of 'Arjun Reddy', Vijay said, "Because I didn't want to become Hindi film hero, I wanted to become an actor, tell stories, and I feel no point in telling the same stories twice. I spend so much energy on a film I do it... I can't redo entire emotions...It's not exciting for me because I know the scenes. I wouldn't want to waste six months doing the same."

Vijay Deverakonda revealed that he rejected Karan Johar's proposal to star in Dear Comrade Hindi remake, but also expressed to do films with him. He said, "I have other scripts to look at but not Dear Comrade."
